The Forest Houses by Bergmeisterwolf in South Tyrol

Written by Redazione |

17 July 2019

Inspired by South Tyrol’s mountain peaks, the “Forest Houses” are the latest project signed by architecture studio Bergmeisterwolf in Deutschnofen, an area of Northern Italy where the landscape is dominated by the forest.

The architects have created a rural retreat composed by three timber-clad volumes characterised by different elevation and positioned on concrete slabs, elevated above the landscape at the foot of the forest.

Clad with a dark timber, the three identical volumes become a unified object that forms part of the natural landscape, because the black-brown laths continue the facade over the roof, whose shape is evident also internally.

Each house is accessed by means of a wooden bridge and a covered entrance, while, at the rear, large cantilevered terraces allow the interior to merge with the exterior: the result consists of interdipendent structures, connected by their appearance and designed to enhance the natural scenery around them.

Photography is by Gustav Willeit.
