From the architect. The Bonaria quarter -in the south-east part of Cagliari- is an area characterized by an uneven topography and abundant housing developments which major part is dated from the fifties onwards. It is an area of fairly high natural elements (the hill of the Basilica of Bonaria) in a strong contrast with steep slopes overlooking the Mediterranean sea of the gulf of Cagliari. In such peculiar and privileged residential context, Dante O. Benini was asked to design another new vertical element featuring the city skyline in a strong manner.

The high position of the building area allowed a research as an architectonic solution the emphasizes of the sea view, that becomes the principal planning element to which be attributed the utmost importance. Large windows are put in the day-area and protected from overhang balconies and sun-screens.

The balconies have lengthen in the air until the utmost limit permission so that it is possible to enlarge, towards the outside, the built up areas. The south-west elevation will be characterized from an interactive facade in micro-perforated metal sheet for the radiating ventilation with function of solar screen to reduce in the lodging at the back. the excessive heat production.

To protect the roofing and facilitate the heat dissipation, a radiating and ventilated micro-perforated sheet solar screen structure will be built and it will have also the support function for the photovoltaic panels of the electric power production.

I think the balcony, in italy off course, is cultural. You can find terraces in every building aroud the cities. But nice solutions like that is hard to find very often.

its not a wonderful building but what i like is that it would be a great place to live and stay in due to the openings and the use of big terrace which are important for spending time out-door comfortably specially in such place with lots of nature to see and the view of the sea
