Just breathtaking Villa San Valentino by Stephan Unger is located in Merano-Alto Adige, Italy. This family residence should provide a comfort living for the cohabitation of 3 generations with common spaces. First of all, the house impresses us with its unusual shape, the original facade and panoramic glazing on each side. All in this dwelling combine modern design and traditional craft and materials. The chosen materials are typical for the place: marble of Lasa, porphyr, granite, wood of the larch and the oak. The larch-wood shingle façade is representing the traditional craft of the Alps-region Upper Adige. San Valentino offers a magical views of the mountains and valleys.

This unusual Garden house was designed by Tham & Videgard Hansson Architect Agency in Södermanland, Sweden. It is a triangular two-storeyed structure entirely covered by the wooden trellis which serves not only as the decorative element but also as the fence for the terrace which is on the roof of the building providing the inhabitants with the views of the local landscape. A big two-level winter garden is located in the acute angle of the house where it has a glass façade. Depending on each room's function even some windows are covered by this lozenged wooden structure. The trellis seems to be entirely covered with the greenery someday. Construction is all wood, both structure and finishes. The house looks very interesting due to its unusual structure.
