Article source: Alp’Architecture Sàrl

Isolated at the fringe of a forest in the valley of Bagnes, Wallis in Switzerland, this barn was transformed and extended into a primary residence for a couple. Therefore, new volumes were implanted at the back of the barn, allowing a minimum impact on the main facades. On the ground floor, this new volume is set underground and hosts a garage, a bathroom, the entrance and the equipment room. The visible part of the extension on the first floor breaks away from the old barn with its contemporary cladding and roof overhang detail.
