Text description provided by the architects. This project involves the extension of a detached house at Trofarello, in a zone characterized by the presence of many detached houses within small lots. At the old pitched roof was build a new volume intended to contain a bedroom and a small bathroom.

The new space, completely made out of fir wood and faced with titanium zinc, does not fill the entire surface of the building below, but just a small part, having to respect the minimum distances from neighbouring buildings and streets.

Therefore the structure of the new volume arises from these restrictions. It is a sort of container in rheinzink, leaning according to the slope of the old pitched roof: a house on the house.
