Project Description

In an alpine village this confident upgrade of the much-loved A frame reinforces its context and all the associated connections of mountainous pastimes. The dominant form of the A is accepted, and in fact reinforced by the more relaxed planning and consistent detailing of the asymmetrical extensions either side. The parapets on the extensions create a clean contrast to the corrugated roofing of the A, and let the extension reads as a beam running through rather than awkward additions.
