Act Romegialli Architects built the ‘Green box’ as the renovation of a small disused garage, an accessory to a weekend house situated on the slopes of the Raethian Alps. A structure realized with lightweight metal galvanized profiles and steel wires wraps the existent volume and transforms it into a three-dimensional support for the climbing vegetation. It is composed mainly by deciduos vegetation. Inside the pavillion provides a room for the gardening tools, an area for cooking and a space for conviviality. Materials are left rough and simple; galvanized steel for the kitchen, larch planks for flooring and big sliding doors, windows in unpainted galvanized steel, simple pipes for the water supply. via iGNANT.
