At the foot of the Sciliar mountain in Bolzano, South Tyrol stands proudly a beautiful cabin-like retreat. It sits on a site previously occupied by an old barn that dated back to 1850. The new and improved structure was designed and built by studio noa* (network of architecture). This is one of the most beautiful and picturesque regions in Italy and the cabin takes full advantage of the amazing views. As far as the overall design and architecture are concerned, this is a rather eclectic structure.
On the outside, the Messner House 9as the project was called) features a strong traditional vibe with local influences. It’s obvious however that the structure has a modern character and this is especially visible on the inside. The project was completed in 2017 and the house offers 220 square meters of living space in total. It has two floors and a very original identity thanks to the old vs new contrast. This duality gives it a lot of character.
