This is a project for a single house-villa placed in a natural imaginary environment. The aim of the design is to create an intimate space strongly communicating with the external environment at the same time. This communication and particular relationship is established through the creation of cracks in a simple box volume that break the enclosure of the interior space and open, visually and physically to the outside.

The cracks, closed with opening glasses, symbolize and materialize the inside and outside relationship in a dramatic but natural way and the design is generated by an “accidental” process and not by fixed designed geometry. The cracked box volumes is concrete construction, and the concrete is used as a natural and artificial material at the same time.

The cracks, beside lighting the rooms inside the house, create particular and scenic light effects in the interior space; at the same time another scenic atmosphere is created when the house itself is lighted in the obscurity, showing itself as a fascinating pattern of lights and shadows.

The house develops itself on one floor, on a terrace space and an underground blank facing on an underground garden: on the front part are placed the day life activities and in the back part the night activities and the rooms; the front part is facing on a deck and a long and narrow swimming pool: a ramp is connecting the roof-terrace with the ground. The interior is treated mainly as a minimal and empty open space; the furniture is also custom designed for this particular house.
