House K2: Inside the traditions, under a monumental roof // monovolume architecture + design

Text description provided by the architects.

Traditional construction methods combined with modern living comfort in the midst of breath-taking scenery. These aspects characterize House K2 on the Renon high plateau. Surrounded by woods and meadows, the building offers an ideal retreat in the middle of the mountains.
The basic concept of the design is a contemporary interpretation of traditional South Tyrol architecture.

The monumental roof covers the apartment below and creates a feeling of cosiness and security. Deliberate dormers frame the spectacular Dolomites and bring the mountains inside the living quarters.


The protagonist of the apartment is the self-supporting interior staircase, which swings to the upper floor in a “U-shape” and contrasts with the very subtle access staircase on the outside.

At the centre, between the living room and the dining room, is a multifunctional piece of furniture incorporating the tiled stube, reinterpreting the traditional architecture of the old South Tyrolean farmhouses.


The use of local materials and craftsmanship gives the building further authenticity and longevity. Light colors and materials on the inside contrast with the sober and darker materials of the outside areas and enhance the feeling of intimacy.

Targeted lighting deliberately emphasizes and sets the scene for the monumentality of the roof..
