Neustift, Italy – bergmeisterwolf architekten
Kofererhof House is a modern structure that sits beside an old farmhouse – quite a vision of inverses. It is a long, vertical building made of raw concrete. It contrasts beautifully with the aging materials of the farmhouse.
The house stands in the middle of a vineyard. Despite its modern appearance, the house blends well with the surrounding landscape. It “rises up” from the ground, being a part of the natural environment.
Inside, it is bright and airy, with timber being the dominant material of choice. It is used in floors, furniture, built-ins, and ceilings. Large glass windows provide great outside views.
Kofererhof House is contemporary architecture designed with restraint.
Notes from the Architect:
The new residential building will be built next to the parental farmhouse, on the hill above the monastery’s Nativity. a building that is rooted in its origins with the landscape and growing up becomes part of the reblandschaft. a long-drawn body that expands into a farmyard situation during the course of the terrain. the building will be part of the vineyard, the landscape. The result is a new “center”, an open but intimate area, a courtyard around which the monolith nestles. on the outside, the raw washed concrete, inside a timber construction, which at the same time assumes the constructive and static function as a roof support. to continue, to open, to grow out of oneself. a game with spaces, with heights and views.
