Text description provided by the architects. This country house is anchored to the horizon line, where the bank of the Tresinaro torrent stands as background and scene of the environmental field. The house reinterprets a historical countryside typology space named “porta morta” in contemporary terms, defining a hollow space that becomes the fulcrum of architecture.

Two side wings help to ground the house in the plot: they slide on each other by a transparent double height passing through, which links and connects the spaces of the bedrooms/studio on the first floor through a hanging balcony. The porch as a solar diaphragm and jasmine canopy configures the open-air extension of the living room, while the first floor rooms extend the house towards the landscape.

The open space on the ground floor places the kitchen in the south-west corner in continuity with the staircase and the tv room in the north-east corner, leaving the double height living space as the core. On the opposite side, the private entrance to the house is linked to the services (garage and dependence) through another hanging jasmine canopy.
