House in Lumino by Macullo Architects, Lumino, Switzerland

The idea of the ‘minimalist monolith’ is the conceptual key of the project and became a principle applied to all elements of the both the functional and construction programme, from the foundations up to the smallest finishing details.

Davide Macullo Architects projected another stunning house located in the Swiss Alpine village of Lumino. The idea of the ‘minimalist monolith’ is the conceptual key of the project and became a principle applied to all elements of the both the functional and construction programme, from the foundations up to the smallest finishing details.

The surrounding area is characterized by traditional store built houses, many of which date back centuries and are marked by their use of this single contraction material.

The new house is intended of the vernacular; its exposed reinforced concrete from recalls the revered strength and resonates the presence of these old stone houses. Sitting on the edge of the old village, the house acts as a sort of bastion between the old core and the modern residential expansion.
