SETBACKS
IN A WALL
Collalbo, Renon / 2016
In order to even out the sloping ground of a plot a new wall is added on top of an existing stone wall.

The new piece of wall is made of concrete and deliberately stands in contrast to the existing stone wall.Vertical wooden form boards leave their tipical mark on the concrete surface. Parts of the new wall fold out and develop setbacks, allowing plants to grow inside the gaps. The green spaces interrupt the austerity of the construction contributing to a playful yet restrained appearence.
