Re-imaging a traditional South Tyrol farm house
Italian architect Stefan Rier grew up surrounded by farmhouses and haylofts. Therefore he wanted to build himself a house in the style of a hayloft, in South Tyrolean German called "Stadl". For his dream house he has re-invented a traditional 1100 square meter farm house in the village of Seis, where he was born.
His architectural "experiment," as he calls it, has kept much of the building’s original structure intact. Local farm houses typically have a stone foundation, and a wooden storage room for animal feed. Rier kept and re-imagined this structure, along with the building’s gable roof and balconies. Its three-dimensional wooden frame supports the edifice.
The re-imagined farm house harmonizes well with its surroundings because Rier maintaining much of the traditional structure and look. And the roof terrace provides a jaw-dropping view of the nearby Santner Mountain.
