Haus G, South Tyrol, Italy

意大利南蒂羅爾 自然住宅 G

Pedevilla Architects

At the junction between Pflersch and Wipptal, a little above the center of Gossensaß village (1,100m above sea level), Pedevilla Architects designed the home of a young family.


The monolithic structure, which evolves primarily into the vertical while following the steep terrain, is made of insulating lightweight concrete – a material that responds to all requirements and braves the harsh conditions of its exposed location. The house’s tower-like shape resulted not only in a small footprint but also created ground-level accesses on both the lowest and top floor.


在 Pflersch 和 Wipptal 之間,比 GossensaB 村莊中心海拔略高的一塊基地上,Pedevilla Architects 為一個年輕的家庭設計了一座住宅。



The structure of the low-energy house, certified KlimaHaus A Nature, originates from the soil at its very location and is firmly rooted to it. Being built of mineral material, it offers expressive durability. The monolith's 75 cm thick walls provide protection and security. Precise openings allow targeted views into the surrounding mountain landscape, with deep jambs becoming spatial elements in their own right, which the residents are able to avail themselves of in everyday life for sitting, resting and observing.


The residential building was the first monolithic building of insulating lightweight concrete to receive the KlimaHaus A Nature certification, achievable throughout Italy, which is based on a strictly monitored evaluation of, among other things, the carbon footprint throughout the whole manufacturing process of materials, reaching as far as for the living comfort. With the inclusion of intelligent building technology, the overall energy efficiency reaches the even higher classification KlimaHaus Gold. The certifications attest to the house's current highest standard in terms of ecology, economy and sustainability.


這座低耗能住宅獲得了 KlimaHaus A 級認證,其結構源於項目植根的土壤和環境。由於使用礦物材料,該建築有著絕佳耐久性。75公分厚的牆體好似巨石一般,提供了安全保護。精確的開窗面向附近山景,深深的側壁也成為了空間元素,使用者可以在這裡或坐或臥,欣賞窗外美景。


該住宅是第一座獲得 KlimaHaus A Nature 認證的整體保溫輕質混凝土建築。該標準適用於整個義大利,嚴格地評估從材料生產過程的碳足跡到建築居住舒適性的全面性。隨著智能建築技術的加入,該住宅整體能源效率達到了更高的 KlimaHaus Gold 等級。這些認證表明該建物在生態、經濟和可持續性方面的當前最高標準。

In the core of the house, the different floors are accessed by a compact spiral staircase. Reaching up to 6 meters in height, the top floor forms an open living and lounge area, extending under the widely overhanging roof. A surrounding window provides an unobstructed panoramic view. Orientation, embedding and view – also from the spacious terrace – create the impression of living in an unspoiled place amidst the mountains.


Within the smooth exterior walls, formed of insulating lightweight concrete, all the functions of the façade are merged into one single layer: protecting, insulating, and supporting. Diamond-shaped concrete tiles for the roof and wooden shingles refining the two entrances were both manufactured traditionally. The entire building envelope is designed monochromatically. Colors and shapes are reminiscent of the tree bark found in adjacent forests.





Natural, grounded materials also characterize the image inside and create a down-to-earth and homely atmosphere. The lower three floors are made of noble materials to create a neutral, bright and unobtrusive environment. The roof space, on the other hand, opens up in a particularly defined and powerful way. Untreated fir for floorings, windows, doors and furniture, handcrafted terrazzo surfaces as well as handcrafted lime plasters characterize the scene. Bronzed brass matched to the color of the concrete and handcrafted glass complement the material palette and give the home its desired durability.

“我們用當地材料建造,用當地工匠和住在這裡的人的性格建造。 這不是一個智力問題,而是一個情感問題:我們希望給我們的專案一個有尊嚴地變老的機會。”

對於別墅建築師來說,建築意味著有意識地處理日常生活的社會、文化、經濟和生態組成部分。 將建築物整合到現有的當地結構中,與應對各自溫度和氣候影響的方法一樣發揮作用。 在這種情況下,一致性問題成為規劃決策的一個重要因素。
