TEdA in Orsonners

Farm and Lattice


Based in Palma de Mallorca, the young studio TEd’A arquitectes – headed by Jaume Mayol and Irene Pérez, recent recipient of the FAD Award for Interiors – has finished a school in the small Swiss locality of Orsonnens, fifty kilometers from Bern. The design is a reinterpretation of the region’s traditional farmhouses, characterized by a neutral, compact volume and a clear structural order. The educational program is accommodated within a block that opens on to a central void, and the envelope is a rigorous fretwork of metallic shingles. Against the external neutrality of the building, the inside is complex, with a multiplicity of visual relationships.
