A home that embraces the landscape.
The house defines its mode of settlement since the very strong planning constraints but mainly from two foundational elements: the relationship with the ground and the relationship with the landscape.
The intention is to create a model of the relationship with the place, which looks like always existed but, at the same time, be an expression of an idea of contemporary domesticity.
The house has an irregular plant in C, a kind of open hand that wants to embrace, capturing the relationships with different surrounding geographical horizons , selecting the view of both sides of the living room facing the court and the mountains: the house is configured in this way as a suspended ceiling between the ground and the sky.
