The house itself is organised into a loose collection of pavilions, separating guest rooms and service spaces from the core living areas. Whether the whole family comes to stay or whether it’s just Nonno and Nanna, the house can comfortably accommodate any circumstance as pavilions are opened up or battered-down according to requirement.
Set atop a hill in a beautiful natural setting, it was important that this project make the most of the near and distant views. In response, the careful arrangement of pavilions creates a cinematic experience of the landscape, subtly framing and shifting focus as the visitor moves about the site.
Importantly, this somewhat fractured experience of house and site is held together by way of a single-pitch super-roof, its diaphanous canopy suffusing the outdoor areas in a soft natural light.
