“Wohnhaus Pliscia 13” by Pedevilla Architects

The alpine cabins “Wohnhaus Pliscia 13” in South Tyrol designed by local studio Pedevilla Architects combine locally sourced and contemporary elements with a focus on sustainability. The exterior walls are clad with black-stained Alpine larch, creating a contrast between the dark exteriors and bright interiors. The architects intended to generate a dialogue with the surrounding landscape using stones from the nearby mountains. Other details include natural materials as a timber-framed bookshelf integrated into a wall and a rope that functions as a handrail. The La Pedevilla residences provide both a permanent home for the architect and his family and a holiday retreat that can be rented out to tourists.
