Valbella Resort staff house – Modular timber constuction

Architect: Ritter Schumacher

Year: 2022

This project focused on using repetition as a key organizing principle to create a rhythmically structured construction. The main challenge was the strict 19-week timeline, requiring parallel execution and careful planning. The goal was to create appealing living spaces for hotel staff within this limited timeframe. To achieve this, prefabricated living elements were chosen, assembled on-site, and enclosed with a larch wood facade on a concrete base. This innovative approach led to a rethinking of traditional construction processes, including material orders and delivery. The design emphasized individual living units and utilized repetition as a design principle, extending outward through individual balconies.
