Esker Haus
San Candido, Italy
Esker House (esker=stratified geological formation) is a self-contained residential unit placed on top of an existing house from the 1960s. Initially developed as a parasite which started from adopting the host structure and gradually differentiated into its own unique organization, formed by a series of steel and timber frames that deform to recreate the hillsides of the surrounding dolomites. This partly accessible roofscape also determines the spatial character inside -the spaces are enfolded by angular series of planes.
