Savioz house in giète-délé, Switzerland by Savioz Fabrizzi Architectes

With winter approaching I wanted to present this rehabilitation of the architectural studio Architects Fabrizzi Savioz Switzerland (see other achievements). This Mayen (Small construction located in the Valais pastures) built in 1882 was used as housing during the grazing period. In 1980, the addition of a stage and the transformation of the roof have greatly changed its appearance. The building has become a holiday home. The intervention of architects reveals the history of this building, revealing the different materials used in the facade. The original stones, bricks added in the 80s and the contemporary changes in concrete are exposed. The gray shades of interior materials reinforce the frames and contrast with the colors of the landscape. Heating is provided by a wood stove coupled with solar thermal collectors. savioz-fabrizzi-01 savioz-fabrizzi-02 savioz-fabrizzi-03 savioz-fabrizzi-04 savioz-fabrizzi-05 savioz-fabrizzi-06 savioz-fabrizzi-07 savioz-fabrizzi-08 savioz-fabrizzi-09
