The house is constructed, starting from the natural elements which configure the ground and determine its identity: It’s declivity, its sight, it’s nature, and it’s ground (schist), the presence of wood from leafy trees to the back of the site. The declivity of the ground has allowed the anchoring of the house at the site and for it to be created on the same level as this one.
The view offered by the site is certainly privileged, that is principally towards the valley, but the project also exploits the presence of wood as its natural surroundings. The nature of the ground and the presence of wood has directed the choice of materials for the façade and their implementation: the lower level is a ferruginous schist plinth positioned in horizontal layers, like the image of the composition of the ground itself, and the high level is a wooden ‘box’ which reminds us of the vegetable component of the site.Urban Platform Project name: BOI 021 House Date: 2004 – 2006
