Entry Description

The volume is not meant as an object laid on the ground, but rather it is the result of a simple ground modelling which exploits the natural slope of the hill. It blends into the landscape, preserving its continuity and at the same time it does not renege on a precise architectural characterization through a concrete overhang that, together with the below wall decorated with burnt strips, first divides and then unifies the topographic levels of the slope. Natural and artificial light is part of the project: the storage room is illuminated by natural light that follows the sun movements.
