Nestled high in the Dolomites, La Pedevilla is a remote haven set in the hillside among only a few other houses. A modern take on the ‘Paarhof ’ construction method, this vacation home is the work of La Pedevilla Architects. It’s bold in its intent, yet retains respect for the surrounds in its execution. There’s no strong boundary to mark where the home ends and the mountain begins.

The interior is an extension of what’s beyond, with sunlit, angular rooms. Made from local materials, the light interior is an ode to what makes up its context; pine wood floors and doors, white Dolomite concrete walls, and soft local Loden cloth curtains. The simplicity is also reflected in the minimalist approach to the design, with objects placed carefully to balance form and function. The selection includes contemporary, aged and custom made. This isn’t just a sanctuary from the cold outside; this is a discreet enchantment for the senses.
