Architects: llabb architettura
Location: Val Trebbia, Italy
Photography: Anna Positano, Gaia Cambiaggi
The hermitage is a space of contemplation and reflection. Isolated from the world, it overlooks a still wild valley, secluded from everything.
Space, not place. This is defined by wood panel, vertical and horizontal lines that are tuned in a thin yet clear equilibrium.
The artefact is a hybridisation between a Japanese tea house and a Scandinavian Cabin. It seems to recall the use of materials typically used in architecture, like metal facades and beam structures, reinterpreting through the use of wood.
The project was realised in two weeks by the studio team, in order to deepen compositional themes and to transmit the “design with your hands” approach to the studio. This “know how” always characterised the llabb architettura work.
