Roof extension in Crans-Montana, House A

The client owns a 4-bedroom apartment, in which each bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom and a south facing terrace. The property is located in the centre of Crans. The apartment is on the top floor os the building.

Our feasibility study demonstrated that a roof extension is possible. Therefore the existing apartment is enlarged by an extra bedroom, resulting in 6 bedrooms.

In the modular timber frame extension, the living quarters for the family together with an open plan kitchen are also located. Openings in the slab between the upper and the lower floor create a relationship between the 2 levels. The Stairs und lift are extended by one level. An open fireplace creates a homely alpine atmosphere.

The initial response from the planning authority was positive. Once the client has reached an agreement about the deed of separation with the neighbours, the project can continue into the next phase.
