Private house, Claro


  • Place: Claro, Bellinzona CH
  • Type: New building – family house
  • Size: 250 m2
  • Customer: Private customer

This family house is located at the foot of the mountain on which stands the old nunnery of Claro, in a typical Swiss landscape. Originally it was designed to be built with prefab elements, due to a different logistics of the construction site, but during construction they opted for a traditional external insulation cladding system.
Like our other projects, the total volume of the architectural enclosure is characterized by full and empty spaces that become privileged views of the landscape or an interior courtyard that frames the skyline of the surrounding mountains.
