ESSE house is part of an open area between a walnut orchard and a vineyard, approximately 15,000 square metres. The Forlì plain is composed of a series of clearly artificial signs that have long since been integrated into landscape, such as rows of orchards, the furrows of embankments and fences, which have been etched into the ground, turning it into a sequence of parallel lines. Placing a building onto this linear scheme means adapting its orientation accordingly, interpreting the natural forms and translating them into architectural elements. The architecture fits into the linear scheme, without altering it. It has two thick, stone-clad walls along the margin. Its visual impact is reduced, letting the tops of the trees remain visible on the plain. A central volume is inserted between the two walls. Functional openings punctuate their surfaces, with thin frames in corten steel revealing views of the landscape. This material interacts perfectly with the walnut and the stone. A small inner courtyard provides an attractive outdoor area.
