Oll+ Interview



Gion A Caminada - Caminada house, Vrin 2000. Having lived and practiced in the small Swiss mountain village of Vrin (populated only be a few hundred residents) for his career, Caminada has a body of work that is highly contextual in its comprehensive understand of local tradition, yet subtly modern in it’s interpretation. For his own house above, the structural system is based on a traditional “Stickbau" method of stacking timbers, however this system is exploited and engineered to it’s full potential to create unobstructed interior spaces, bridge large structural spans, and create aesthetic deviations as seen in the clean corner detail in the bottom image. Scans via, photos (C) Lucia Degonda
