为了纪念她的父亲－一位在瑞士南部Ticino地区小有名气的考古学家兼画家，以及她早逝的女儿，已80岁高龄的老太太筹办打造了这间她筹办已久的博物馆－MeCri Museum。 由19世纪建筑改造而得来的博物馆主体建筑于2014年完成，静静耸立在业主心爱的小镇Minusio的保护区内。 而在2012年，studio inches architettura接受业主的委托，开始着手于博物馆的扩建设计。
MeCri Museum began with the dream of a 80 year old woman to realize a museum in memory of her father Aldo Crivelli, who was a famous archaeologist and painter of the southern Swiss region of Ticino, and her daughter that passed away at a very young age. The idea was to refurbish an existing building in her beloved old town of Minusio and convert it into a museum to display the artwork of her father and other artists. After years of searching, our client bought an old house of the XIX century in a protected area and our studio was contacted in 2012 to start on the project; its first step was completed in 2014 with the refurbishment and transformation of the existing building.

The extension was planned in 2012 and realized in 2016. The intervention leaves the existing stone walls (protected by regional law) untouched. At the same time it creates a dialogue with them, through materiality and by recalling their existing height and length. As the old stone walls degrade through time, the new concrete boundaries will stand on their place. The concrete was washed in order to create a finishing that integrates with the context. The walls of the intervention define an inner courtyard thought as a void that connects the two parts of the museum MeCrì.

A pitched roof that is integrated in its surroundings, thanks to its form and materiality, covers the new exhibition room. Its monolithic mass is strengthened by the use of local stone granite as a cladding. The 9m skylight crowns the top of the roof and creates a mystic atmosphere in the interior of the pavilion.
