This small residence, built within a larger property, commissioned as a residence for guests. was derived from the demolition of an existing building. The project idea was to create a lantern, visible from different angles as a sign in the landscape. In this context of great beauty, the goal of using environmentally friendly materials, sustainable technologies, is facing the choice of wood, both as a structural element such as a skin for the building, in order to create a bond with the context that is reinforced by the choice of colors which blend the color of the trees to the color of the volume in her tone.
In a forest of oaks, ash and maple trees, on Bologna hills, in a place of large naturalistic beauty, on a steep and chalky land, rose a small warehouse beside a private house. At its place today rises a small hosts house on two levels, conceived like a modern architecture adapting itself to the landscape with innovative and contemporary style. A compact volume embedded in the land that takes advantage of the characteristics of the ground and the place.
The use of prefabricated wood panels has allowed an express development of the yard, which lasted little more than four months, conjugating technical, stylistic and architectonic needs and affording a strong interaction with the ground
The walls are ventilated and thermally isolated, covered with wood panels in the same color of the surrounding trees. The same material is used for the inclined cover, while the flat cover of the main body is ended with a layer of gravel.
On frontal prospect open many light holes that respect the dimension of the panels, while on the lateral fronts there are large windows that integrate nature and the building. The inside is simple and linear while for external details and walls of control are used chalk blocks from the yard workings.
