HOUSE IN Monticelli Brusati, Italy by Studio Artec

We like thinking about this house as a transposition on our territory of a Californian Case Study House of the 1950s and 60s. The structure is of course adapted to the local climate and landscape, but the spirit that generated this design is that of simplicity and of being self-confident with the place as it had been for those so famous houses.

The shape of this house is born from the juxtaposition of the internal spaces, thought for its inhabitants and not to express a specific artistic or architectural language. The great pyramidal skylight of the living room, the curved porch protected by wooden brise-soleil and the curved stone wall of the southern external space act as counterpoints to the main volume and generate a feeling of ‘place-making’, fusing with the landscape and giving identity to a series of spaces that have as their principal aim the quality of life.

The house is placed in a large garden, outspread towards the landscape and nature and on a swimming pool shared with another house.

The internal space is defined by the functional division between living/dining and kitchen and by the great skylight through which warm light floods all day long.

The dining zone overlooks a second external dining space, protected by an open portico and the curved wall.

Three sleeping rooms overlook more private portions of the garden so to give quietness and privacy.

Key materials: local hard stone for the external walls, Oak for the internal paving, gray sandstone (Pietra di Sarnico) for external pavings, larch wood for brise soleil.
