JM Architecture, Montebar Villa in the Swiss Alps

The Milanese firm headed by Jacobo Mascheroni built this house in Medeglia, in Switzerland’s canton of Ticino. Local codes require homes to have pitched roofs of a dark gray color, so the prefabricated timber house presents pieces of porcelain-like earthenware from the faceted, six-sided roof to the facades and shutters, giving a monolithic look, like a stone integrated in the landscape. On the contrary, the south elevation opens with a curtain wall towards the valley, with large panes of glass providing sweeping views.
