casa nicola
sicilia - 2001
the attempt is to reorganize the conventional sense of dwelling with one simple folded surface. the sequences from entrance to living, dining area, to the semi private study and guest rooms, to the very personalised master bedroom and to the outside roof terrace are all denied at the end with a simple connection to a future twin house. the different transparency and translucency relates to the prestigious location and views. more peculiar with the hint of outside with the green strips boxed in a glass atrium where you can see the winter rain and the summer sun while one is lying on the sofa instead on the terrace. the ramps connect different space smoothly and gradually temper the project with privacy moving upward.
