Textual content description offered by the architects. The intervention lies inside a typical suburban context, poor in tensions and density. The lot, slim and elongated, is parallel to a blind neighborhood avenue. The consumer’s request for a home with vast views of the out of doors areas, in relation to the form of the positioning and the options of the context, generated the precise typology of the undertaking: an introverted home, articulated round two courtyards in a relationship of diagonal symmetry between them.
The development consists of a strengthened concrete body, with honeycomb brick partitions, persevering with an Italian custom which, by necessity, has used the strengthened concrete body inside a considerably huge masonry logic. The undertaking consciously assumes continuity with this custom: within the uncooked building, all of the body buildings have been solely coated in brick, to create steady assist on which a 3.5 cm thick conventional plaster, product of pure hydraulic lime, may very well be utilized. No exterior wall insulation sounds empty, the insulation is all inner.
All the home’s major areas are organized on the bottom flooring; on the primary flooring a smaller, set-back quantity homes an space devoted to work and examine.
Few openings on the exterior fronts, giant plaster surfaces shimmering underneath the sunshine, the rawness of sure particulars: all the pieces aspires to present an summary picture to the development, to deceive on its actual scale, thus putting it in a essential relationship with the bizarre suburban domesticity of the environment.
The creation of a vigorous backyard within the small exterior surfaces left free from the constructing, along with using a particular Vicenza limestone for all of the horizontal surfaces in touch with the plaster, contribute to reinforcing the concept of an “erratic rock” drowned in a typical suburban urbanization.
