Architecture studio Bergmeisterwolf has completed an extension to a house on the shores of Italy’s Lake Garda, featuring glazed walls that disappear into the ground to open the living area up to the garden.

The client for the project — an economist from Vienna — wanted an addition that would add value to and improve the functionality of a villa originally constructed in 1680.

Bergmeisterwolf, which is based in South Tyrol in the very north of Italy, was tasked with expanding the home’s floor area and optimising the connection between the internal spaces and the large garden.

“We needed to design an extension tuned with the existing building in a way that they both enhance each other,” said the studio.
