House M-101 – Ostuni, 2017

The House stands on a hilly terrain, in a context of high landscape value, characterized by the presence of oak and olive trees. The desire to preserve the place on which to carry out the work, drove us to think of a “ Suspended House” to lay on the ground without touching it. The building is characterized by two parallel horizontal slabs that float in parallel projecting and forming the “Porch”, a shaded and sheltered area from where to contemplate the view. At the rear front, a garden encircled by dry stone walls create a protected area (orthus conclusus), a more intimate space for the guests of the house. The technological solutions adopted to ensure high standards of energy efficiency have been integrated and harmonized in order to achieve architectural results without compromises. The use of local materials, limestone, oak wood and elements that refer to the local construction tradition and methods, such as dry stone walls, establish a relationship with the territory without interruption of its continuity.
