“We wanted to leave the plain as untouched as possible and to work on a volume that is raised above the ground. The impressions from outside were of an essential importance for the interior”, says architect Wolfgang Tschapeller. “The question was: how can we start an operation on the object that makes living possible?” The answer lay in an intensive dialogue with the clients and in overlaying the biographies of people and the surroundings.
