The project goals consisted in having both the maximum shape of the footprint of the building provided by an existing development plan and the covering of the building with a large pitched roof which was an important pattern and an essential icon of the isolated house.
The internal layout of the building volume and the organization of the external areas are characterized so as to organize areas and functions of the house.
The flat occupies the entire mezzanine; the basement provides parking, leisure and fitness and is connected outside through two staircases to the garden.
The Northern front is pierced by a few openings, while the Eastern and Western façades are completely closed. The southern front is almost entirely glazed and its radiation is mitigated by a lodge placed between the building and the garden.
The finishing materials are the ‘Apricena’ stone used for walls as well as floors with green ‘Alpi’ marble inserts and copper sheet of the coverage.
The roof with a single sloping towards the garden projects onto the front of the house thus defining with its volume the look of the building towards the village. From the roads and from the cattle tracks running in the surrounding countryside the house is punctuated by crosspieces orienting the house towards the landscape.
