House Plans

The Seven Books House designed for single-family dwelling, intended for local housing, results from a reconstruction of an existing ruin. Respecting the pre-existing structures and the altimetry system, the house is designed according to a half-floor typology. Since it was necessary to increase its height, a decision was taken to set the extension apart from the pre-existing structure through a structurally different solution, which adopted a clearly different language, emphasised by the interplay of materials. The exterior openings respect this distinction; the existing floor has a scattering of windows, while the volume that comprises the top floor has continuous panes.

From the volumetric point of view, there was evident care to reduce its exterior volume with a view to aligning the house with adjacent buildings.
