Swiss architect Armando Ruinelli has recently completed redevelopment of a barn into a single family residence in Soglio, Switzerland. The dwelling merges the traditional structure with a contemporary aesthetic, maintaining its place within the village’s context. The three storeys are set into the steep slope, placing an entrance at ground level with access to outdoor areas overlooking the alps from each floor. The first floor contains an open plan kitchen, living area and study which are arranged around a concrete stair and fireplace unit. via
