Alpine House by Pedevilla Architekten

View all 14 Photos

Feast your eyes on this sustainable beauty covered with knotty wood planks, clinging to the hillside of Enneberg, Bozen, Italy. The Alpine House by architects Pedevilla Architekten utilized dolomite rock from on site for the foundation and local sourced solid swiss stone pine and larch throughout the construction. Besides resourcing greener materials, the next proudest feature is the distinct similarity to the ancient Les Viles typical Ladin houses. Their multiple buildings stuck into a cliff, weather-worn wooden siding, saddle roof, sweet balconies are just a few of the notable characteristics. With a few top notch responsible moves, this property was hooked up with their own water source, and by the use of geothermal energy, solar energy and a PV plant all energy is readily available for this sustainable treasure. This way our money can be better spent on things like really good wine.
