Description of property
In 2010/2011, the Vaterlaus family built their holiday home from pigmented MISAPOR insulating concrete, in the mountain village of Parsonz situated at an altitude of around 1500 m on the wide slopes between Tiefencastel in Graubünden and the Albula Pass, in harmony with the surroundings and meeting the requirements of high-quality construction. Architect Peter Tinner had the task of designing an attractive, low-maintenance and energy-efficient building with a high quality of living, and to realise it with care and prudence. In order to achieve the maximum possible energy savings, the walls of the living rooms were fitted with the newly developed MISAPOR core insulation system (CIS), enabling them to achieve the MINERGIE standard with a U-value of < 0.15 W/m2K. The special feature of this system wall is that the selected core insulation is poured in a single work-step with high-quality fair faced concrete on both sides. This makes the house practically all of a piece, following the tradition of monolithic construction, which saves time and results in the unique MISAPOR insulating concrete surface with its living sensory appeal. There is a harmonious combination of nature and modern building culture.
