PivotWoodEGGERLaminatesDoorsVEKADoors – VEKAMOTION 82Text description provided by the architects. The existing house, which had to be converted, is situated in an interesting urban context close to the historical core of Ascona. It’s accessible by car and by foot directly from the village and it has a romantic palm tree garden with a spectacular view over the roofs towards the Lake Maggiore and the mountains.Save this picture!© Hannes HenzDue to its steep slope, this area is strongly influenced by high retaining walls, which are usually made in traditional natural stone.Save this picture!© Hannes HenzThe existing house doesn’t have any relation to the architecture of the surroundings; its relation to the garden has a certain quality.Save this picture!Basement Floor PlanSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!First Floor PlanThe project responds to the location and to the terraced garden with it’s stonewalls. The choice of using natural stone with traditional plaster (combined with completely plastered walls) gives the house a new identity and integrates it naturally into the garden and the neighbourhood.Save this picture!© Hannes HenzThe existing natural stonewall along the valley side road is interrupted in order to create a new generous entrance situation with natural stone paved parking lot with an entrance gate. An additional technical- and storage room is integrated under terrain behind the remaining retaining wall.Save this picture!Section A-AFrom the entrance gate a gently rising ramp leads to the lower existing garden level, from where it’s possible to get access to each level of the house.Save this picture!© Hannes HenzThe house, which has been reduced to a simple stone cube, integrates itself into the existing garden and creates a unity with the existing stonewalls.On the lover level there are two small and atmospheric bedrooms, the main entrance with wardrobe, a bath with sauna, a storage room and also a covered outdoor loggia.Save this picture!© Hannes HenzSave this picture!© Hannes HenzOn the upper floor there is the master bedroom with its bath and wardrobe area, the main living spaces, like the spacious living, dining, and kitchen area, which offers a great view with its large window. To the side and to the back two full glazing enables an unlimited connection with the garden and the existing stonewalls, inside and outside are experienced as one.Save this picture!© Hannes HenzProject gallerySee allShow lessRoyal Arena / 3XN + HKSSelected ProjectsCabin Østfold / Lund+Slaatto ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Remodel House in Ascona / Wespi de Meuron Romeo architectsSave this projectSaveRemodel House in Ascona / Wespi de Meuron Romeo architects CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Ascona, Switzerland Year: Photographs: Hannes Henz Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Area: 180 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/883913/remodel-house-in-ascona-wespi-de-meuron-romeo-architects Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeWespi de Meuron Romeo architectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsAsconaSwitzerlandPublished on November 21, 2017Cite: “Remodel House in Ascona / Wespi de Meuron Romeo architects” 21 Nov 2017.
