Meran’s Luxurious House M in the Tyrolean Alps

house m2 architecture

The exceedingly glamorous House M from Monovolume Architecture + Design is sited in an alpine resort region.

It takes a current architectural fashion to the extreme.

I see more and more white houses with thick walls – and houses that have some kind of “sky frame” squares on a roof. This has both.

Sky frames are like the picture windows of the 1950s, but they have no glass, and they frame a portion of the sky.

These are getting thicker and whiter and the squares are getting bigger.

House M extends this fad to its extreme, by making the walls so thick.

It doesn’t make its “sky frame” frame more sky, but it makes the thickest frame yet.

The thickness of the walls also has a benefit:

Very high levels of insulation in the super-thick stucco walls (and triple glazed glass for all the glass walls) make the house very energy efficient.

The house has one underground floor for parking with two upper floors.

The underground parking is well designed so that four cars can turn around inside.

From the lavish parking and the three double bedrooms (and two single ones) it appears that the house is to be shared by an extended family.

The huge central kitchen at the heart of the house can handle many eaters.

House M is set in Italy, a nation where extended families are a norm.

But it is also set in the tourist area of the German alps.

The town of Merano is a spa town in the Tyrolean alps near the German border, (where it is called Meran).

Perhaps it is designed to be a vacation rental villa, to accommodate large family reunions.
