Wohn- und Geschäftshaus Tiroler Goldschmid

This is Wohn- und Geschäftshaus Tiroler Goldschmid by Höller & Klotzner in Schenna, Italy. It is group of a residential and commercial buildings. The second photo shows the context of the site and how the two different types of architecture contrast each other in a rather pleasing way. The cube-like commercial building appears to be floating on top of the large heavy base due to the long windows underneath it. The base on which it rests acts as a platform for both buildings and boutique shops at street level. This is an interesting composition that has a lot of richness to be observed and studied.
