Design 2017 – Realization 2018 – 2020



The project is located in “Runcaa” in the municipality of Curio in a parcel raised from the cantonal road from which access is guaranteed via a private connecting road.

The design system is strongly determined by the morphology and orientation of the land and the natural stone wall acts as an ordering element, defining the hierarchy of the external spaces and the path that accompanies the user to the entrance of the building and then discovers the ground floor and the limits of the garden. Developed on three levels, the main volume is placed perpendicularly to the stone wall and occupies the northernmost part of the fund, leaving a void to the south dedicated to the entrances, the garden and a volume at the service of external activities.



Semi-basement floor:

Outside we find the square, access to the garage and to the house. The strong presence of the stone wall leads the user to the entrance of the house and welcomes him in a double height space. An open staircase runs parallel to the wall and leads to the living area opening onto the garden.At the same level we find the service rooms such as the cloakroom, the cellar, the laundry, the technical room, a service toilet, a storage room and a garage for two cars.


Ground floor:

The contents are the classic ones of a living area; a large open space houses the living room, the dining room and the kitchen overlooking the garden. Separate are the service areas such as the pantry, and a guest service. From the living room, a large window defines the boundary between the inhabited space and the outdoor garden, the latter partially arranged as a terrace with solar coverage.

A comfortable and scenic staircase furnishes this space and leads to the first floor.


First floor:

A distributive space overlooks the double height of the staircase and guarantees access to the two single bedrooms, the toilet-shower and the master bedroom with wardrobe and bathroom. The double bedroom and bathroom overlook a private terrace facing west.
