San Severo is a small town near Foggia. The historic city centre is chacterized by two-storey and three-storey buildings. There are also tall edifices and depositories. This architectures have facades realized with bricks or white plaster. Many of this buildings are covered with Apricena’s stone in the low part. Usually they are closed by a flat roof or by a pitched roof, not very sloped. The part that comes out of the roof is always restricted according to the mediterranean house tipology. “Casa d’angolo” was born in this contest. A building based on a rectangular plan and realized starting from an old storage. The idea of this introverted house starts from the necessity of blocking the view of the interior space from the pubblic street. The solid block of the new building, located in the corner, it counteres the adjacent facades. In this house the windows are projected on the small patio. The building is developed on four levels: the basement is used as garage; in the raised ground floor there are living and a kitchen; in the first floor there are three rooms; and the second floor contains a little space linked to the ample terrace.
