Located in Vahrn, Italy this villa by architecture firm Bergmeisterwolf Architekten has a subtle presence in the surrounding landscape thanks to a glass encasement that softens its detail.

By filling an existing void, the new monolithic construction integrates itself in the urban tissue. The new building is docked to the existing Villa Volgger by a floating glass area where is located the fitness/sauna area for the family.

The building imposes its compact shape and tries not to be undermined by its context. It is an introverted way of living, of vertical walls that both close the space and allow glimpses of the surrounding landscape. Recycled green glass panels blur the surroundings, creating an evanescent but recognizable structure, perceivable also from the outside.
