Project Description

The “Viles” – an ancient Ladin form of settlement in South Tyrol – were the inspiration for the design of the Pedevilla. The ensemble located at 1200 m altitude in a small hamlet corresponds to the local couple court type: two staggered, similar buildings nestle gently on the slope. They have traditional ornaments and characteristic features such as gable roof, porch and wood facade, which are interpreted in a modern way, however. Based on the traditional architecture and the principle of sustainability just a few, local materials were used: Dolomite stone for concrete, stone pine and larch. Behind the dark facade there are bright rooms with a puristic yet homely atmosphere – accompanied by the view of the mountains of the Dolomites.
