Guided by the region’s traditional alpine farmhouses, Austrian firm Innauer Matt Architekten designed the house as a simple wooden building resting atop a solid, reinforced concrete plinth. The striking pitched roof is made of copper with its gable looking down towards the valley, and horizontal larch cladding was used for the façade to give the house an interesting ribbed texture with deep grooves.
