Independent practice that works
with spaces and artifacts, ideas and significance.
Our activity covers interiors, architecture, research and design consulting.
The new extension subtracts space to the most
enjoyable part of the garden and, for this reason, the project aims to
transform the top of the building in a roof garden, a very livable outdoor
space, partly paved and partly green, easy to reach via a ramp that starts from
the top of the sloping site. The house is thus almost completely mimetic toward
the street, as it opens to the landscape, where the best views are. Plant
growth will ensure the privacy of the terrace garden.
