The house in olive grove shows the original architectural concept in all its features. To place a new building in such kind of landscape, studded with centuries-old olive trees, has represented the pivot of the planning, focused on a minimal impact on the contest: for this reason no tree has been explanted or moved to build the house.
The insertion in the landscape has been moderated also working on volumes and materials. In this way different spaces of the house has been separated and reassembled so that articulation obtained among masses results optimal and minimal. The use of stones extracted during the excavation as covering walls gives the building a natural and integrated appearance compared to typical countryside constructions, and the choice of using natural materials, as wood or Cursi stones used for the outdoor flooring, has contributed to realize a modern architecture able to match with the contest.
Wide openings characterize external walls: they are essential for obtaining a continuous relationship between indoor spaces and nature, to enjoy the beautiful surroundings still untouched.
