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.

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.
