The house consists of two highly geometric, separate volumes of concrete, one for services and the other for the main residential areas of the house. The two volumes are joined by means of steel bridges with a glass floor that do not touch the trees and the forest and create the impression of walking on the vegetation. The staircase is part of these bridges.
The volumes are largely closed to the outside and almost entirely open to the gardens and terraces facing south and east, capturing all the sunlight on the terraces. We therefore designed some aluminium sunshades and positioned some seating in shaded outdoor areas.
The house was built with a mixed system of concrete and metal structures with wooden beams, a system that allowed us to have totally open areas without supports, with the idea of integrating the exterior and interior spaces. All the structural systems of the house are plainly visible in order to monitor their performance see how they work with all the structural elements of the house.
All the furniture is imported and includes brands such as Minotti, Paola Lenti, Rimadesio and Bulthaup.
In terms of sustainability, all the spaces in the house have an optimal orientation, so the indoor climate and temperature are very pleasant, and all the windows are insulated. We have a system of recycled wastewaterfor irrigation and a system of several filters for water purification. All the electrical systems in the house are automated, including lighting, audio, video, security, heating, blinds etc.
Customers have always trusted us and given us total freedom for all designs, making the process very efficient and fast. We can say that this one of the very few projects we have developed where absolutely nothing has changed from the first draft to the completion of the house.
