The project M, a residential building in the center of Meran, Italy is embedded in the quite area of Obermais, designed by monovolume architecture + design. The concept of the design was to play with transparent and solid surfaces, what follows are fascinating insights and outlooks. The interior melts together with the outside space. The terrain flows through the building and finds its renewal in the pool and meadow area. Because of a refined external design and the arrangement of the pool, lawn, garden and house the whole concept seems like a unity with seamless transition.
The ground floor follows the slightly sloping ground like a staircase to get a large garden area. Because of engineering technology considerations the building is conceived as a compact volume with one underground and two upper floors. From the construction point of view the 3,875 square foot (360 square meters) house is built as a concrete construction, furnished with upgraded insulation. The glass-facade, door and window elements are executed as 3 layered glazier.
