Spare Ribs


transformation of an old butcher’s shop

collaboration with Comte/Meuwly



A house in poor condition that used to be a village butcher shop. The budget is extremely limited. A project that approaches an archaeological excavation: walls are opened, light enters. Simple solutions are found. Our main task is to send the client back to the shop to return the purchased catalog materials, and try to convince them to remove just one more layer. Step by step, the original materials and value of a centuries-old construction are discovered.
