From the architect. An ancient house inside the historical city.

A four floors house.

The principal theme from outside is the section on the facade and the non-colour.

The theme inside is the function linked to a colour.

White is the colour that wrap in a new contemporaneity the whole case.

In this particular sequence of spaces the central grey original wall is the only independent item.

The grey wall is emphasized by the crossing passages: these are like engraving in the wall.

At the end the yellow colour is for the dinamic parts of the house: the stairs, the elevator, the pipes: inside these parts all the fluids move up and down, left to right.

The bar code is the randomic matrix of every design detail inside the house and gives to the house an outward disorder.

This small town in Northeast Italy has a rather high urban density. Regulations make whatever an architect might want to propose challenging. Furthermore, this area was heavily bombed at the end of WWII. Houses like this one, built apparently out of reinforced concrete, probably started out during the reconstruction effort as something else entirely. It would be interesting to know what this building was before it was a house.

The project presented here seems like a worthy antidote to the pervasive style of the area. This is a courageous project, especially in its use of color.

I like it that the architect avoided some of the obvious choices and went ahead to apply color to the board formed cement and brick. The chrome yellow staircase will be controversial, but I believe it works.

The lighting, to my way of thinking, is exactly what we ought to be looking at in the 21st century (despite the fact that these methods were pioneered in the 30s, 40s, and 50s). It is terrific to see to what extent they have avoided can lights or baroque sconces that look like jewelry smacked on the wall.

The presentation is peculiar. Overall I like some of the photoshop renderings but the one of the bathroom is just confusing. Why do I need to see that? Also, I am at a loss to correlate the photos to the plan. There are two living rooms and two kitchens shown but neither the photos nor the explanation indicate that this is a bi-family residence. It would be interesting to know why the house is designed this way.

Guys, why don't you go and get some kid from Fabrica to write your explanatory text in proper English? It would take you half an hour to find someone who would be willing and happy to help. Publishing this in Inglese Trevigianizzato doesn't really help.

Overall, kudos for what looks like an excellent project.
