The design idea comes from the will and the request of the clients to have a place where they can disconnect from everyday life obtaining an oasis of peace and relaxation. The concept therefore arises from the concept of creating a sense of continuity with the surrounding space through the openings, the swimming pool and the garden. We like to imagine the house as a solid mass from which ceiling and wall openings are made, creating an element of dynamic narration.
The project was designed taking into account the aspects of sustainability. The objective of the research is the definition of a villa that respects some fundamental parameters:
Therefore, a new architectural language has been identified capable of integrating modern energy technologies, criteria for ventilation, sunshine and humidity in the spaces. In the design of the residence, the research led to: - identification of a modular cut in plan which allows to aggregate the individual units in a functional way; compliance with eco-sustainability objectives; - chromatic study of the elevations.
Our project is characterized by the limit between tradition and continuity and finds in this project a reason for strong compositional tension. The elements that are proposed in the architectural project can be said to be in continuity with that Sicilian reality that is still legible and recognizable today in the Mediterranean houses immersed alone in the landscape. The residential property is surrounded by a green space that becomes a common courtyard, a typological system recognizable through an urban morphology that takes on a highly social character. The use of stone in the basement and in the enclosure walls reinforces that long-lasting compositional reality, that material strength and linguistic heaviness which is typical of the Sicilian reality. Idea of having a material relationship between long-lasting materials and decidedly more modern materials, such as glass and iron that seem to demonstrate a continuous dialogue between modernity and tradition.
A neutral volume immersed between nature and the sea.
