Casa C - A Refurbished Haybarn

architects Marianne Julia Baumgartner, Luca Camponovo
project Casa C, family weekend house, Reckingen, Wallis, Switzerland


The 100-year-old Casa C is located in the centre of Reckingen, facing the church.


Reckingen is a typical settlement in this mountain valley.


Houses and barns are divided into separate units. The small-scale barns form a landscape of close-standing, dark wooden buildings with narrow alleys in between. There are only a few stone buildings, among them, the white plastered Baroque church. The church’s scale is enormous compared to the wooden barns.
