House D
Caldaro, South Tyrol
The house as a village Four small tower houses are grouped around a common centre as one building. The house becomes a village: on the ground floor the small houses provide a place for communication and community. On the top floor a bridge connects the individual houses and their rooms, ensuring retreat and concentration. The lofty tower house leads to the terrace. The building is striking for its ambiguous play with the scale and with interior and exterior, which is reflected in the choice of material. Heights and depths, wide and narrow spaces and the resulting outlooks and interplay of light define the house’s character and atmospheres.
