Against an idyllic woodland backdrop in Nova Ponente, Bergmeisterwolf Architekten has designed ‘Fan Forest Houses’; a trio of holiday houses clad in vertical boards whose concrete foundations allow their wooden tops to merge with the landscape.

Designed to be interdependent, whilst “reinforcing each other in form, distance, and positioning”, the staggered placement of the three buildings makes them appear uniquely shaped despite their consistent composition. The buildings are each accessed by a wooden bridge and covered entrance which leads to an open-plan interior. The pitched roofs of the buildings—so common in traditional farmhouses of South Tyrol—are an aesthetic feature further enhanced by the lightwood gable walls of the interior. The thoughtfully designed interior extends through large doors onto a cantilevered terrace which the architects say, “allows the inside to merge with the outside.”
