Located in South Tyrol, the Haus am Mühlbach is a single-family house that represents both the elegance and tranquillity of a manor house. With its white façade, made from locally crafted materials, it appears as a white monolith in the alpine landscape. The house is built from monolithic clay bricks. The surface of the outdoor walls is rough due to the use of sand, lime and white cement for the construction, and emphasizes the building’s monolithic character. The architects used varying shades of the building materials’ basic natural tones throughout the project. The solid walls of this pentagon shaped building are made of 50 centimetre-thick clay bricks. The interior is light-flooded, with strategically located windows giving the inhabitants a spectacular view of the surrounding mountains. The house consists of seven split-levels, and the rooms are arranged to give them a visual relationship to one another. It was important to the architects to use high-quality local materials both internally and externally. The Haus am Mühlbach meets the client’s brief and also symbolizes regionality, quality and perfect adaption to its natural environment.
