Fondare sembra concesso solo a chi mantiene la coscienza che oltre il nuovo sistema di ordine, di orientamento, rimane sempre la possibilità di perdersi” J. Rykwert The place: a lot with a fine view located in the Bisenzio river’s valley: the landscape is a sequence of wooded areas, fields, olive-groves. The land is articuladed through terracings with stone walls. The project aims a silent insertion inside this landscape. The pool is placed on the higher level of the lot, an essential water surface that extends towards the garden and the landscape and contained by a half-submerged frame of cardoso marble. A path of the same marble leads to the pool-house. The building exploits the existing slope taking the form of a stone terracing placed at the same level of the pool. The north front, opposite to the pool, consists of a series of stone bloks, derived from the ancient terracings stone walls and forming a counterpoint to an adjacent small wooded area. An ethereal volume “leans” on the stone bloks: it is formed by a copper roof supported by a frame of slim iron pillars and it’s conceived as a contemporary interpretation of the barn typology. It contains an ample living area linked to the pool and the landscape through completely glazed walls with iron frames.
