The anomalous prerogative of the site to belong to two differents municipal lands rules the planning strategy aimed at a real estate initiative.
The largest area placed in via gaspari in casalecchio di reno commune receives a two-storey building of four aligned houses and a two-family building with three floors is located in the tight lot in via milani, in bologna municipal territory.
The environment is mixed: towards the lush zanardi park parallel to the alignment of the main building fronts, the landscape is seductive but it faces north; instead on the opposite side the favorable southern exposure is contrasted by the intrusiveness of the existing buildings, hasty constructive tests of the postwar period.
The project re-examines the original idea of a transparent façade overlooking the park and prefers to interpret the versatility of this dissimilar contest replicating its characters in uniformity: both north and south pole the transparents partitions of the daytime areas on the ground floor encounter the overlying solid surfaces of the night time areas; these are panels mutually isolated by the voids distinguishing the residential from the entrance and service parts. In natural lighting also penetrates through skylights.
The inevitable volumetrical and formal dystonia caused by the raising of one floor and by the marginality of the adjacent two-family building in the bologna commune represents two expressions of different typological matrix that finished work condenses in a unique way as clear example of a coherent concept dependent on homogeneous architectural meanings.
