From the architect. Giacomuzzi house is a duplex building. It is conceived as a highly compact body to fulfill energy issues and it fits into the sloping terrain to exploit the landscape. The house is oriented towards the path of the sun and overlooks a stunning sight. The site is located on the outskirts of the village Caldaro sulla strada del vino, where between the house and the lake Caldaro there are just fields and vineyards.

To show up this wonderful view, a continuous wall closes three sides of the building, whereas the south facade features wide windows and balconies. Living room and bedrooms face to south, the other rooms to northwest. This type of duplex house is the modern interpretation of the traditional pitched roof houses, to exploit the solar energy. Following the path of the natural slope, the position of the first and second floor is shifted backward from the lower floor.
