From the architect. Located in Bolzano Italy, the Villa Urbana Domus Radicalis embraces a concept that does not show identical, repetitive residential typologies, but instead offers different residences which increases the exclusivity of each unit. Designed by Milan based firm Metrogramma, the condominium is a contemporary building that is harmoniously integrated in the surrounding urban context.

The relationship between the different typological proposals is conceived as a landscape, made of full and empty spaces. These active innovations have allowed Metrogramma to direct its efforts to the residential intervention model.

The residential typologies are as follows: residences with gardens (ground floor), one-family villas (1st floor), loggia apartment (3rd and 4th floors), and attics with roof gardens (5thfloor). Additionally, each apartment is provided with broad loggia-balconies and terraces on each floor.

Ground Floor
Ground Floor

The façade is rich with precise details giving an idea of the inner heterogeneous subdivisions. The external covering is made with “Carat” asbestos cement slabs set on an understructure.

Well I like the building and so on but I don't think it is 'integrated in the surroundings' at all.

TIM FAIRBANKS · November 25, 2013 10:45 PM

"I don’t think it is ‘integrated in the surroundings’ at all."

Agreed - the use of a continuous fence and concrete "moat" feel almost medieval, fortress-like.

mmm....interesting box.

Tristan · May 17, 2012

How is this "harmoniously integrated in the surrounding urban context?" if anything it sticks out likes sore thumb in an area that looks somewhat pleasant.

Kristina · May 17, 2012

Lovely project, like the integration of the terraces and garden areas.
