BRIDGE TO THE WORLD OF MOUNTAINS: AN APARTMENT BUILDING IN SEEWIS

When renovating a flat in an apartment building in Seewis im Prättigau (GR), the owners opted for the Villapark one-strip planks by Bauwerk Parkett. The married couple who own the flat were really impressed by the spacious dimensions (2,100 x 190 mm) of the Villapark one-strip planks. The parquet they chose, natural oiled Oak Mandorla 45, with its rustic grading and varied structures, perfectly complements the interiors of the flat, which are mostly white. The old wooden doors with wormholes create an excellent interplay here with the dark highlighted pores of the oak parquet.

The flat, located in the Prättigau valley community (Graubünden Canton), was built more than 20 years ago. The owners moved down from the upper floor to be closer to the garden they love. Also, because of the couple's advanced age, walking up and down the stairs every day has become too tiresome, which is why they decided to switch flats.

The 4D Holzarchitektur GmbH architectural firm from Oberriet (SG) was responsible for designing the renovation. Managing Director, Nik Graber (dipl. Arch. MSc), has noticed a tendency towards rustic surfaces that create varied effects: «The trend for distinctive wooden surfaces has clearly taken hold. The fewer straight lines the wood has, the more striking its effect. Nowadays, with many industrially produced products, varied and complex structures provide a unique sense of character, which many people are excited about. Just 10 years ago, hardly anyone was interested in wood products with knotholes; nowadays rustic, authentic wood is very popular. This obviously also relates to the fact that the ability of manufacturers to highlight such natural advantages in many types of wood is continuously improving.»

The husband has his own company, which specialises in water processing. His company supplies heating and plumbing installers with products that soften, purify, filter and demineralise drinking and heating water. The optimum energy use of underfloor heating guaranteed by the Villapark product line was the decisive factor for him. The eco-conscious couple were reassured of their decision by the fact that Bauwerk’s products are healthy for living and ‘Cradle to Cradle’ certified. This means that the products are natural and manufactured in an eco-friendly way, and that they can be recycled after their service life is over.
