Wardrobe in the landscape // Enrico Scaramellini Architetto


The project is based on two specific conditions: on one side the client’s needs, looking for a small and intimate space; on the other a small, special and precious place. The alpine landscape dominates the place: it becomes evident the condition of a privileged and unique space.

The concept of size guides the project. A micro retreat for weekends, a place for contemplation, a clearing house from a daily hectic urban condition. A small wooden box fits between two existing buildings. Inside, the wood shows its nature in warm tones; outside, the surface treatment with silver-gray paints echoes the colors of the centenarian woods of rural buildings. The wooden panels, assembled with different development of the vein (horizontal – vertical), react to sunlight returning different geometric compositions.

Outside, the new wooden facade seems to hide itself, in the shadows of the landscape, and then to confirm, with sunlight, its presence. Inside, the space becomes a privileged place overlooking the landscape.

The project operates in small size, uses simple devices to find a contemporary language within strongly characterized environmental contexts.
