ABC House is a project aimed to re-think the traditional relationship between nature and culture, landscape and architecture.
The clients, a young couple with one kid, have commissioned a villa where to spend their summer holidays, with an open flexible living room and two bedrooms.
The project consists of two levels: the ground floor hosts kitchen, dining room, and a small studio; bedrooms and bathroom are at the first level.
The silhouette of the Italian mountains, with their irregularities, offers the pretext to work on a kind of hybrid system based on the assembling of three components: two independent boxes, containing bedrooms and technical spaces; the roof, whose geometry recalls the orographic context; and, lastly, six panoramic points –small parasitic architectures offering unusual views.
The house’s dynamic and articulated facades are counterbalanced by a homogeneous and continuous interior space, made of wooden structural panels, and equipped as a kind of modernist machine for living.
