Designed by Davide Macullo Architects, SWISSHOUSE XXXV is a tiny house made entirely of wood in Val Calanca, a valley in the Swiss Alps.
Built in the Swiss Alps by Davide Macullo Architects, SWISSHOUSE XXXV is a tiny house marked by its small dimensions and exacting design. The project is a good example of how even a tiny structure can not only completely fulfill its purpose but also be an important addition to the built landscape. Designed by architect Davide Macullo, the house is detached from the main building but connected to it via a small corridor set back from the facade. Inspired by the village’s traditional buildings, this tiny house stands out for its regular geometry. The first floor has a kitchen, dining room, and living room, while the mezzanine area has a bedroom, bathroom, and wardrobe.
Wood is the main building material used throughout, with exposed timber finishing both the interior and exterior. The warm colors of this natural material balance out the cold hues of the Alpine winters, making SWISSHOUSE XXXV an inviting refuge. The house is fully timber framed. The outside walls are lined externally with fireproof panels (RF1) and clad with vertical larch boards of different shapes. Moving inside, the walls are lined with three-ply fir panels with a clear varnish. The mezzanine floor and roof are constructed with cross-laminated fir boards.
