Haratori Office Mathon is a cross-cultural project by Office Haratori, Zürich and Office Winhov, Amsterdam. Project architects: Nahoko Hara and Zeno Vogel.


The village of Mathon has remained remarkably intact without significant alterations to the built fabric. At its heart sits an old wooden barn which has fallen into disrepair. If it were to be demolished it would never be replaced creating a gap in the centre of the village. To preserve both the structure of the barn and its role in the village ensemble it is converted into an alpine loft, a place for work and reflection. The project draws upon examples from far away, most prominently the Japanese house.
