on the first floor, two internal gardens divide the living spaces and invite nature into the heart of the house. banchini has created overlaying transparencies that blur the boundaries between interior and exterior. under the suspended volume, a generous covered space allows for outdoor living and parking. each architectural element placed in the square plan is specifically designed for the simple building and by using economical materials and prefabrication, the construction costs have been minimized.

developed with engineer marc walgenwitz, the house is built almost entirely in wood, pushing the structural capacities of this natural material to its limits and reducing the use of concrete to a bare minimum. by achieving high insulation values and maximizing solar gain, a small heat pump allows the building to avoid the consumption of fossil fuels. assembled in a few days by local carpenters, casa ccff proposes an eco-friendly alternative to the archetype of swiss concrete houses.
