Project 2014 -Realisation 2015-2016
OBJECT AND PLACE
Located in the hamlet of Carnago in the commune of Origlio, the plot and the existing building border the west with the forest and to the east by the cantonal road, from which you have access to the property.
The extension and elevation of the existing building examines the entire volume and redefines its shape and proportions, unifying the old and the new through design choices and the use of a single covering material.
The project, strongly bound by the distance from the forest and the existing volume, is characterized by a pitched roof with several slopes that defines the volume, the path and the internal spatial hierarchy.
The path starts from the new extension to the north containing the staircase that guarantees access to the new living spaces and the first level; the particular shape of the roof accompanies the user along a path that first discovers the living room in double height and then continues upwards, towards the light, and concludes on a higher level with the dining room, the kitchen and, on the outside, with a large terrace.
On the first floor, in addition to the living room, are the sleeping areas with their children’s rooms, the parents’ master bedroom and, in the center, a common service and laundry.
The extension is entirely made of prefabricated wood with a mineral finish.
