Pictures: Monumental studio in Swiss village

Studio Olgiati has completed a monumental private studio in Scharans, a small village in Switzerland, on the site of a historic barn.

Permission was granted by the local authorities on the condition that the building would have exactly the same volume as the old barn.

Client Linard Bardill, who lives close to the site, required only a single space to work in.

The workspace occupies less than a third of the stipulated volume – the rest is taken up by an atrium with a large, round opening to the sky.
