P+F, Rifugio con vista
Parisotto+Formenton Architetti designed the interior of an apartment inside a residential building by the Swiss architect Hans-Jörg Ruch in Pontesina, Switzerland.
This holiday house on one floor has a perfect position to enjoy the breathtaking panorama of the surrounding mountain landscape dominated by woods and the peaks of the Bernina valley.

The pivot of the space is the two-sided loggia that organizes the entire area dedicate to the living room, dining and kitchen. Bedrooms and service areas are located at the back.

The material concept is based on warm, tactile, real materials that are used in a contemporary, unusual way. The project enhances the natural characteristics of the local woods, somewhere applied rough in contrast with more refined surfaces, and natural stones combined with portions of rough concrete.

The minimalistic approach to the volumes and the simple contemporary furniture find a perfect match with some richer details such as furs, decorative elements and contemporary art.

Generally speaking, the interior design follows the main project approach: the void of the loggia contrasts with the solid presence of the big concrete wall, smooth as silk, that stands out the warm larch-wood boiseries, flooring and ceiling.
