Atelier Bardill Valerio Olgiati


This dark red concrete enclosure in Scharans, Switzerland, contains a work studio for a poet and musician. Completed by Swiss architect Valerio Olgiati in 2007, the building’s walls are embossed both inside and out with a circular flower-like symbol. A rectangular grass courtyard is located inside Atelier Bardill and is opened out to the sky through a large circular opening in the roof.

Sliding glass doors separate this courtyard from the studio space, which only occupies around a third of the overall interior.
