HOUSE IN MAINELLA
ROME IT 2016
Project commissioned by the client: on the land located in Via Della Mainella in the province of Rome, our client, following the commission of the farm, also commissioned us with the preliminary and definitive design with construction details of a residence to be built on-site. The request of the client was to design a wooden residence, with two floors and about 300 square meters of surface area with an adjoining stable for two horses. An open space on two floors inside a double-height building envelope, to have a wide space that overlooks the west-facing window where there is abwe can see a beautiful view at sunset. Required: a double room, two single rooms, an annexe for guests. I have designed 4 bathrooms, a sauna, a Turkish bath, an internal garden with patio, a small gym, a garden, double internal heights and a large terrace overlooking the sunset. The wooden structure to the south is transformed into a series of brise-solail, which dampen the warm summer sun rays that create particular plays of light and shadows.
