The first appearance of this group of stones, put together with the intention of  build a scelter, had been in 1882.

It was a floor construction, a barn, where in some nights shepherds finding a refuge. Now at it was then, it is in the middle of a field inside, or surrounded by a forest, maybe  on the slopes of a mountain, perhaps of a hill. What I know for sure it is that  these walls are in Switzerland.

Then time passes and in the 1980s others owners added bricks to raise a level. And now has become an holidays home.

About this house, what impressed me is the feelings of joy. It will be the grey paint which covering the original stone and clay tiles, because makes it look the ancient barn would have wear a skintight and slinky dress. On the other land the aim of Savioz Fabrizzi Architectes has always been working on transparencies. The reason why was give home a sleek visual and together retain the original roughness. But they are also the large openings, the outside that looks in the glass, the colours of the inside which one can glimpse. And it is weird, because the idea has been : make use of stained glass window turning them into door entrance for saving the functional aspect of yore.
