Redevelopment of a rural, Grandvillard

Situated along a main street at the northern entrance to the village of Grandvillard, the modest 1876 farm building was once a barn and stable. The structure is a Grade C-listed building and demolition is allowed.

The project involved partial deconstruction of the farm building and its reconstruction into accommodation, while retaining some of the features from the previous structure (entrance, walls, roof ridge and proportions). The accommodation is inspired by regional typologies and their relationship between movement and functional spaces. The new proposal is based on an interpretation of the region’s structural and architectural elements. The shell and structure comprise joined spruce boards that have been sawn and aligned in such a way that makes them suit many different purposes.
