The project consisted of the restoration of the house “El Bosquet”, which is inside the neighbourhood of “Can Gustí”, located in “La Vall de Riu”. The objective was to set the house up as a short-stage refugee. Thus, the restoration entailed the reinforcement of the stony walls, the change in the house layout turning it into a main space which encompassed the dining room and the living room, and the relocation of the services (kitchen and bathroom). The night area was in the lower level, in an enclosed space. Moreover, the facade composition was developed offering new windows as view frames which valued the astonishing landscape of the valley. At the same time, another layer was gained in the walls and the roof with a great deal of isolation and wood plaques, so that they improved the thermal conditions of the interior. On the whole, we were seeking a seclusion atmosphere in order to observe and enjoy this privileged spot.

Located in San Vigilio di Marebbe, Italy, the Jagdhaus Tamers is a cozy mountain cabin built entirely of wood. Designed by EM2 Architekten, the cabin has the special feature of a wall that can be opened up completely, exposing the home to the environment that surrounds it - and the stunning mountain viewscapes.. Built with minimal windows so that when it is empty it can be buttoned up and safe from curious wildlife, the home has a few long and linear windows and one large glazing that let the natural light in, but its not until the wall is opened up that the connection with the outdoors is complete.
The Jagdhaus Tamers is surrounded by a forest of tall, majestic trees that is home to a wide array of wildlife and when the homeowners spend time in their home away from home, they have a unique ability to enjoy the beautiful sounds of nature.
