House Messner
Castelrotto (BZ) - first prize
The architecture of the Messner house is based on the traditional building typology and is therefore formed of a stone plinth for the lower levels and a wood frame construction for the upper floors. The interior design is also shaped by the architectural supporting structure; different cubes and terraces are tied in the frame work. The architecture wants to respect the genius loci while the interior design interprets space in a contemporary way. The private rooms such as bedrooms, bathrooms and sauna are located in the secluded and plastered cubes. The interspace offers place for more public functions. The different bedrooms are fixed to the frame works at different levels above the living and eating area; as a result interesting sight contacts are produced.
