Embraced by Engadine larch forest, the house is located on the famous Suvretta hillside in St. Moritz. Divided into two offset bodies, the house appears slender an well proportioned. This approach also allows the structure to fit the hillside well and thus gain charm and familiarity. The facade was built with a particularly fine Luserna stone from the Valle d'Aosta. Its elegant and filigree character gives a very natural touch to the house and fits the dramatic mountain scenery very well. Bright modern rooms and the use of high-quality local materials characterize the interior of the house. The living room is structured by a level difference this allowed to lay a lowered and nestled lounge around the bronze fireplace. An antique Engadine salon was used to create a seating corner in the kitchen, the resulting interaction with the modern kitchen creates a special perception of place and time.
