The term loft we usually connect with big cities. However, this type of architecture is also suitable for some smaller towns. The following example is located in a village called Mathon in Switzerland , Originally, the converted building was a wooden stable. The project dates back to 2016 and covers an area of 150 square meters. It was commissioned by the architecture firms Office Winhov and Office Haratori. Leading architects are Nahako Hara and Zeno Vogel.
“Loft”is a concept for modern comfort in an antique frame
Prehistory of the project
At the beginning of the project the wooden stable was in a pretty bad condition. If it had not been replaced or renovated by a new building, a large hole in the middle of the village would have been created after its complete decline. Therefore, the renovation was important for both the private owners and the whole community.
The needs and interests of these two sides must be combined.
The loft does not change the traditional village image
A loft that has to pass the test of time
If a building plays such an important role in a village’s life, it must be made visible through its architecture. The relationship with the street, the community, the rest of the buildings was crucial. If these harmonize in the long run, then one could argue that the architecture has passed the test of time. At the same time, it is important for the inhabitants that the loft is solid, useful and sustainable. The trends would have to be evaluated very carefully and only then used.
Modern techniques and traditional features are combined in the exterior design
Simplicity and upscale character
The final result of this architectural project largely reflects the most popular lifestyle in such Swiss towns. You love the simple lifestyle and at the same time the high level. In every aspect of life environmental, social and cultural dimensions are included. This is also a great example of many modern village dwellers!
