Wohnhaus 220, Poschiavo, 1992—1993, Direct

Poschiavo Light furniture

In a house of 1850 in Poschiavo three servant rooms in the third upper floor will be united to an apartment for summer holidays and completed with a kitchen, a shower and a toilet. The three new functions are organized as a furniture object in the broad corridor parallel to the back and irregular fire wall, so that the polygonal space figure will be kept.

The furniture walls consist of translucent, plastic panels with wood frames in maple, which contains handles and door fixes. During the day they are bright, during the night they transform the whole furniture in a lamp for the corridor. With the choice of prefabricated, industrial products the nomad furniture is made available to the visitors.
