The building is brought by the aggregation of three volumes, all with a rectangular plan with the same planimetric proportions and easily recognizable from the outside.

The central bodyand the south facing bodyare developed on one floor; they are designed to be the space for relations and receiving guests.

The third volume closing the courtyard to the northis developed on two levels: the spa and fitness area are located on the ground floor while the sleeping area is located on the first floor.

The inner courtyard, bounded on three sides and open to the garden, resembles the courtyards of the Venetian rural houses: it is conceived as the fulcrum of the house, it is a fourth body, a void, an enveloping space towards which all the volumes of the houseare faced.

In this context, the project listens to the surrounding landscape, opening up to dialogue with it and receiving its shadows, lights and sounds. The metal roofing of the three bodies lying on the gabled roofs reflects the colors of nature. The “carabottino” closures allow glimpses of the reflections and movement. The square-knitted metal panels conceal the interior spaces corresponding with the large windows, letting in a filtered light that envelops the interior in a play of lights that accompanies the passing of the hours and the passing of the days.
