The house is situated in Trin-Mulin wich is a small village in Grisons in front of an impressive mountain chain. The task was to draft a domicile for a couple. They required a living and dining room, a kitchen, two bedrooms with a bath and a dressing room, a library, a studio and a wine cellar. The conception was a three level house with almost a square footprint and a steep roof, precisely placed in the scenery. The flanking single-storey annex integrates the building in the landscape and defines the entrance. Further it allows to have two integrated covered parking places.
In the inside all the rooms are arranged around a central wooden stair core. The heightened living room causes mezzanine levels in the upper floors. This rooms varies in their height and orientation. The large windows are correspondingly located which proposes specific views in the mountains and strengthens the homogeneous appearance of the house.
The supporting structure is built with a external leaf in concrete and supporting slabs. The inner wooden core is non-structural. Consequently it has an internal insulation with a mineral plaster on its surface. The color of the concrete is based on the regional cement.
