The building is beautifully situated, embedded in a historically grown town structure, on the hillside of the Rhine valley with views from the Lake Constance to the Alps. On this exceptional area in terms of both natural and built landscape the existing patchwork should not be continued in order to meet the needs of the younger generations.
The original buildings in the village are characterized by a clear typology. The base is solid, plastered. On top of this base there is a clear and simple wooden cubature with openings, windows, where they need to be.
Returning to these simple basic ideas, it was possible to condense the existing structure and at the same time a uniform image. Architecturally, a circumferential dress, a shell made of natural fir ensures a uniform image. The space between this shell and the existing building creates a strong interweaving of interior and exterior areas both visually and functionally to enhance the identity of the place.
