Surrounded by citrus groves dominating this part of the eastern coast of Sicily, the residence is set to become part of it.


Located on the lower slopes of the Volcano, this particularly elaborate silhouette building attempts to establish a new harmony with the peculiar characteristics of the surrounding terrain.


The volumes that seem to lie down on the ground follow the growing trend of terrazzamenti, representing the original agricultural vocation of the place. Going inward, the logic changes and here is the home to dominate the degrading terraces and the outside area of the pool with a large lush vegetation typical of Mediterranean vegetation.


The strong relationship with the site is also evident from the choice of materials and colors.
