Pedevilla Architects have designed the La Pedevilla, perfect holiday getaway located at 1200m altitude in San Vigilio di Marebbe, Italy. Visitors would definitely be awed by the picturesque scenery and majestic mountain scape.
Description by Pedevilla Architects:
The two staggered buildings with their cautious insertion into the hillside correspond to the local couple court type. Regional ornaments and characteristic features like saddle roof, loggia and wood façade are taken up and realized in a new, pure and independent way. Reducing the materials to some special from the surroundings (dolomite rock for the exposed concrete, solid swiss stone pine and larch) corresponds as well to the earlier style and the thought of sustainability. Warm swiss stone pine wood and soft felt fabrics meet white exposed concrete in the interiors and form a thrilling composition. The own water source, the geothermal energy, the passive application of solar energy and a PV plant provide the house with the necessary energy sources and make the building energetically self-sufficient.
