Office trip Monte Verità

We made a summer trip to Ascona and Locarno to follow the early traces of the Ticino Tendenza as well as more recent projects by younger architects. We spent the night on Monte Verità in Emil Fahrenkamp's former sanatorium from 1929, which was renovated as a hotel in 1970 and extended by Livio Vacchini in 1990 to include a wing with a restaurant and auditorium. Following in the footsteps of the Ticino Tendenza, we were able to visit Luigi Snozzi's Casa Snider (together with Livio Vacchini) and Casa Kalman, which are considered milestones of 1970s Swiss architecture. What was surprising and convincing for our young team about both houses was how they fit into the landscape or the village structure in a differentiated way.
