CompanyOPENBOOK Architecture

This house takes full advantage of its location at the top of a hill. The architectural challenge evolved around the fit of a very linear structure within a natural hilly surrounding. The spatial awareness of the house was projected amidst the greenery of the landscape, providing views that extend as far as the eye can see. The judicious usage of the main materials - glass, concrete, wood and travertine - allow the various textures and colours to be intertwined with the tones of nature in all its splendour. The dialogue achieved between architecture and nature is unique.
