1930’s, our intention was to
(1) gently renovate / restore the existing structure
(2) enlarge the building through a series of micro-scale additions that follow the logic of the existing spatial division into small rooms
(3) entangle the existing, the tree and the new in a joyful composition
(4) improve the house’s energy-balance by modernizing all technical installations using exclusively renewable energies
(5) carefully relate the house to its surroundings, both natural and urban.
Like the tree, also the house grew by hand of the multiple extensions, which ultimately frame the beech’s impressive stature, and engage the interior with its lively presence.
