The project is developed starting from the needs of the client and the natural conformation of the site.
The house, in fact, is designed and developed in three distinct parts but
connected by the stairs.
At the basement we designed a new atelier with garage to satisfy the client’s requests, since he was passionate about cars and motorbikes and wanted more space to devote himself to his hobby.
This part of the house overlooks the garden and thanks to the terrace above it is equipped with a covered porch that acts as a filter between the ground and the entrance of the atelier.
On the ground floor, in addition to the main entrance, we find the living room and the kitchen in one large open space, next to the parents’ room with the wardrobe and the bathroom.
All the rooms take light from the south and have big openings towards the large terrace that runs around the house.
The proximity of these spaces makes this floor a totally independent floor that can function autonomously as a small apartment, here parents can continue to live during old age.
on the first floor we find the four bedrooms for childrens served by two independent bathrooms, each on the opposite side of the house.
The architectural composition once again helps us to make this plan totally independent and modifiable to be rented separately in a future in which the four children will no longer live with their parents.
We worked hard on the impact that the house could have on this small village.
Being very large and tall we used the terrace that runs around the house as an element capable of breaking this continuity of material and shape and divide the house into two apparently distinct parts: the part where we find the garage and the atelier is completely opened in facade and worked with polycarbonate, a transparent and light material that makes the part below the terrace almost imperceptible from the garden.
The rest of the house instead is treated with the local stone like the others
houses. Thanks to this alternation of materiality the upper part, resting on the terrace is perfectly inserted into the surrounding.
The two diferent “entities” of the building are deliberately obtained and give way to alternate the monotony of the stone house with a lighter space open towards the garden.
The basic element to reach this goal, in addition to the choice of materials, is the terrace that in addition to its normal functionality in this case also assumes the role of a podium where the stone house is placed and exposed.
