Text description provided by the architects. This residential project for three young friends who decided to build their homes together could be considered an architectural exploration of the theme of friendship. The corner lot in a residential area had already been chosen by the clients.

Three buildings were constructed at 45 degree angles to each other pivoting around a fulcrum point planted with an olive tree - a symbol of friendship - and connected by a portico that anticipates the identical volumes of the three houses: each home is a single volume with a single-pitched copper roof. On the external facade the large double height window opens onto the pool. The walls are faced with tufo treated all'orvietana.
