The larch barn in Wallis, Switzerland by Alp’Architecture Sàrl

Friday, January 15th, 2016

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.

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

Article source: Evolution Design AG

The Swiss architecture and design practice Evolution Design, in close collaboration with the client Swiss Life, created 46 individual 2.5-4.5 room maisonettes and flats with a unique concept.

The aim was to develop flats, which would go beyond the functionality and offer an ideal added value as well as have their own identity. This approach responds to the increasing need of individuality and plurality in our current society. Therefore the development of KISS’s design put the future tenant and his personal lifestyle at the centre of its thinking.
