renovation and addition


Vahrn, Italy


Gustav Willeit


The project, Villa Mayr is a construction brought back to its origins and at the same time an additional building. It is a building founded on the tradition with a new development of details that form a whole. At the ground floor, the removal of a wall creates a wider interior in a sequence of rooms including bars, foyers and reception areas. Elements such as the historic staircase and the stube are undergoing restoration and consolidation. A play of colours and materiality. It is a research of a balance between the existing and the new. An extension of the existing structures. A work with additions, recesses and shadow effects. An integration of the wooden façade with its surfaces and its historical colours, a variation of colour.
