A flowing dynamism in line with the environment is behind the design of this house located in southwestern Sicily and built for a young couple interested in architecture and art. The different rooms have been divided according to time and different usages by enlarging or contracting the provided spaces according to the usage dynamics and the possible interactions established by the users. All this is achieved by the use of a few interventions, as to immediately orient who moves inside, as the continuous wall in dark plaster that unites the living and the lunch area, and, with a slight rotation relative to the axis of the house, generates at each moment different and suggestive views.
The toilet block, at the center of the house, consists of the laundry and guest bathroom. Their entrances are perfectly camouflaged by invisible doors, as not to alter the continuity of the ribbon wall. The house volumes are fluid and versatile due to the large sliding doors separating the kitchen from the study. A big multifunctional piece of furniture in Zebrano wood, set at the center of the house and including a wardrobe and two sliding etched glass doors conceived as a real landscape object, is an important visual linchpin visible from the different rooms.
The modularity of the house's light, the center of the firm's research, brings together the different rooms of this house and elicits different emotional states. So, it is possible to move from the dim light of the entranceway into the brightness of the living room with large glass windows, from where one can admire the picturesque rock wall coating the house. A white cabinet with wood inserts, customized as the whole furniture, hides the television set. The sleeping area on the first floor is accessed via an opencast spiral staircase made with selected black granite. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms can be found here. The main bedroom, designed as a suite, has a walk-in closet, a large bathroom clad in dark wood, furnished with a hydromassage bath tub and shower, and a sun terrace for relaxation and contemplation of the natural landscape.
