The house is located in an area of recent housing development, consisting of small traditional houses without any identifying marks. The owners’ will was to stand out from the context and to meet their needs by using more contemporary forms and a classical distribution program (living are on the ground floor, sleeping area with 3 bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor). Through a series of matter subtractions and sliding volumes the traditional formal system broke up, creating a continuous variation between full and empty spaces, which create a dynamic image and an alternative to the neighboring residential context. The white plaster emphasizes the constantly changing facade, a balanced set of variations.

La maison se trouve dans un lotissement récent, formée par une série de "maisonnettes" traditionnelles dépourvues de tout signe distinctif. La volonté des propriétaires, une famille de 4 personnes, était celle de se détacher du contexte en de répondre, par des formes plus contemporaines, à tout un ensemble d'exigences et un programme distributif classique (espace jour au RDC, espace nuit avec trois chambres et une salle de bain au 1er étage). Par une série de soustractions de matière et de décalages volumétriques, la structure formelle traditionnelle a été décomposée, en donnant vie à une variation continue entre pleins et vides, qui donne une image dynamique et alternative au contexte résidentiel autour. Le crépi blanc souligne les changements continus de chaque façade, un ensemble balancé d'alternances.

La casa si trova in un tipico quartiere di recente lottizzazione, formato da « villette » tradizionali prive di qualsiasi segno distintivo rispetto ai cliché retorici delle ville unifamigliari di provincia. La volontà dei clienti era quella di distaccarsi dalla monotonia del contesto, risolvendo attraverso forme piu’ contemporanee un insieme di esigenze e un programma distributivo classico (zona giorno con veranda al piano terra, zona notte con tre camere e bagno al primo piano). Attraverso una serie di sottrazioni di materia e di scorrimenti volumetrici si è voluto scomporre l’impianto formale tradizionale, dando vita ad una variazione continua tra pieni e vuoti, opacità e trasparenze, tali da generare un’immagine dinamica e alternativa al contesto residenziale limitrofo. L’intonaco bianco sottolinea i continui cambiamenti di ogni facciata, un insieme bilanciato di alternanze.
