Natural elements like stone, larch and iron creating an amazing house in the Alps


Architect Alfredo Vanotti designed this amazing house in the Orobie Alps, Italy. Respecting the preexisting ruin the house was built upon the mountain architecture traditions using local stone, larch and iron elements. One of the aims in the project was to create vivid spaces with lots of natural light, to enjoy the sunlight and the marvelous views to the surrounding valley all the year.

The ground floor consists of a living room, kitchen and bathroom while upstairs has two bedrooms and a loft to use as an small office. The natural elements used in the design create a solid, yet soft and warm atmosphere.

Light bulb pendants and the textures in floors and in concrete walls create an interesting atmosphere, mixing same time differen interior design lines.


Big windows multiply the amount of light and feel of space inside.
