the unit has been organized around a patio with the function of central court; this compositional logic allows a visual reciprocity between the different environments with many possible views. The living area and the kitchen-dining area are in direct contact with each other and with the outside by means of a remarkable visual permeability, partially filtered, from the leafs of the bamboo plants in the center of the patio. The centrality of this space is partly contradicted by the perimeter openings emphasized by some centrifugal projections of several architectural elements that have been stretched toward the extreme edges of the available area (a surface very limited compared to the volume allowed). We gradually deconstructed the volumes and tried to get an architecture that should be slender with lighter elements toward the plot’s limits, like the wall that marks the main entrance's axis becoming the long concrete beam suspended above the pedestrian access on the street. The sleeping area on the first floor has a different attitude much more private with an "atmospheric" connotation due to its sensitivity for the natural light changes becuase of the direct contact with the sky through the linear slots cutted on the roof. In general, during the design phase, the expressive language of this architecture was affected by the client’s preference for the ninety degrees angles and the flat surfaces, which has prompted designers to overcome the static nature typical of this initial setup through the strategic dislocation of the volumes, the use of suspended masses and shifted surfaces. Then, during the construction, other choices of the same type have pushed decisively the total white option and the number reduction of the materials used, which have been plaster for all vertical surfaces in combination with metal panels (ventilated walls made with aluminum panels – layered panels) and stone slabs , combined with floating wooden surfaces (accoja), for the external floorings. From the point of view of energy, the purely technological solutions have been reduced as much as possible using only radiant systems (radiant panels) and solar systems; we wanted to use "low-tech" solutions, when possible, which could ensure the internal microclimate control in a passive manner through the natural flow of fresh air from the green external areas.
