The building was born on the pre-existence of a house from the mid-1900s then renovated in the 90s, in a lot overlooking the Sile river, in the peri-urban area of the historic center of Treviso.
Starting from the pre-existing grounds, the building winds its shape in a sinuous way until it conquers the view of the river through a large portico which intends to "frame" the riparian landscape and at the same time respect its naturalness by decreasing the height of the facade.
In summary, on an architectural representative level we could identify three main themes:
- the Form, expressed through a free and explicit volume that leads and guides the user to the knowledge of the context;
- the aesthetic character, expressed in the 'skin' that changes according to the more urban or natural view;
- Permeability, in a continuous game between living space and landscape, through the large glass surfaces, the internal garden, a 'dematerialized' wall.
From the plant engineering point of view, the construction of the building involved high standards with a view to energy saving performance.
