S.Giorgio house 2
Detached single family home on a corner plot.
This building is conceived as a union of larger prisms connected by smaller prisms. The central cube is the main volume, a double height living room with a generous gallery, the taller prism is dedicated to the open plan kitchen-dining room at the ground floor and the master bedroom at the first floor, the smaller prism to facilities and guest rooms.
Among the many modern design features of the building, a steel and glass open raisers staircase and 6 mt long steel and glass bridge overlooking the living room and connecting the balcony and the service wing.
The contrast between the warm and cold materials employed in the projects (travertine, exposed concrete, exposed timber roof, steel, glass) gives this house a striking contemporary look without making it be too stark.
