Amazing, luxury and beautiful design of the Villa San Valentino in Merano-Alto Adige, Italy. Designed by Austrian architect Stephan Unger, a modern house with a traditional dressing: The larch-wood shingle façade is representing the traditional craft of the Alps-region Upper Adige. The windows and the shadings are positioned such way, that the energy balance is optimized and the panorama is introduced in picture frames. Interior features chosen materials are typical for the place: marble of Lasa, porphyr, granite, wood of the larch and the oak.
