Calascino by Studio Inebi
Alexander Zaxarov
Apr 27, 2020

The two Buildings, designed by Studio Inebi sit on top of a hill, overlooking Brissago and the Lake Maggiore. The panoramic views and the proximity to the forest in the background make a unique place.

The property is only accessible via a footpath, all transports for the construction work were carried out with the help of a helicopter.

The summer house, built in 1955, was completely renovated and made suitable for use all year round. With minimal interventions in the building structure, new rooms and perspectives are created. The house was completely packed with insulation from the outside and new plastering. Former outer walls become distinctive elements in the interior.

The listed Rustico has received electricity and a bathroom and thus serves as a summer guest house. The well-preserved natural stone walls are left visible, the new wall elements which are equipped with the sanitary appliances only touch the outer walls selectively. A new staircase connects the two floors.
