Interview with Pedevilla Architects at Thursday 18th of February 2016

FS: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
AP: The main principle was to fit a design into a traditional environment. Therefore we took most characteristics of the neighbouring buildings as role model.

FS: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
AP: With our design we always strive for a masterpiece in craftsmanship. In this case the whole structural element (basically the naked house) was castes in exposed concrete. All fixtures were pre-positioned.

FS: What are your future plans for this award winning design?
AP: Media & Publications. We also like to publish it on our homepage.

FS: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?
AP: Mainly the design process takes two years. After that the construction process takes another two years.

FS: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
AP: We considered the existing traditional buildings in this area, which are self-contained mountain farm houses.

FS: Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?
AP: The design is singular. We will not re-do it. Every client will receive his own design.

FS: What made you design this particular type of work?
AP: Our way of working. Our way of doing design. Developing our own style of architecture.

FS: Where there any other designs and/or designers that helped the influence the design of your work?
AP: We as Pedevilla Architects corporated with Arch. Caroline Willeit who helped us refine the design process.

FS: Who is the target customer for his design?
AP: Main target was to take the farmer and the farm house and reorganise it in the modern age. Everything changes through that: sozial, ecological, eceonomical habits. Thats why the farm house turned into a modern residence and the stable turned into chalet, wich is up for rent.

FS: What sets this design apart from other similar or resembling concepts?
AP: Basically the floor layout and the constructrion.

FS: How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?
AP: Pliscia 13 is basically the adress of the house. Plaiscia is the name of the hamlet, which consits of a handful of buildings.

FS: Which design tools did you use when you were working on this project?
AP: pc & model.

FS: What is the most unique aspect of your design?
AP: Tradition, Regionality, Modern Interpretation, Material Reduction.

FS: Who did you collaborate with for this design? Did you work with people with technical / specialized skills?
AP: We mostly corporated with the cratsmen. But as on every other construction site with the specialised planners.

FS: What is the role of technology in this particular design?
AP: We do a lot of rendering, 3d visualisation and modelling before the final design. So technology is indisplaceable.

FS: Is your design influenced by data or analytical research in any way? What kind of research did you conduct for making this design?
AP: We did a lot of traditional & regional based research. Research on role models. Did case studies. The outcome is surely unique for this special location , but could in therm of background not be transported into urban areas.

FS: What are some of the challenges you faced during the design/realization of your concept?
AP: Biggest challenge was the moulding of the structural element, namely the naked house. All fixtures were inlay works and could not be changed afterwards.

FS: How did you decide to submit your design to an international design competition?
AP: Because it is a unique design, which did win a lot of awards in the past years. It is very welcomed by the media and a very good publicity item. It is after all an italian design.

FS: What did you learn or how did you improve yourself during the designing of this work?
AP: We improved a lot in terms of construction and pre-planning knowledge.

FS: Any other things you would like to cover that have not been covered in these questions?
AP: None at the moment.


FS: Thank you for providing us with this opportunity to interview you.
