"In all good architecture there’s one common denominator: the relationship of space to the human scale. No matter whose work you look at over the last centuries - whether it’s borromini, bernini, bramante, alvar aalto, michelangelo, mies van der rohe, frank lloyd wright or louis kahn - it’s always about the quality and the scale of the spaces you move through, and how the individual human being relates to the scale of the spaces."
Talking about the volume, there are two distinct bodies. The main one, which characterizes the construction, is composed by an imposing double inclination layer which seems to fluctuate above the ground if we look at it from the garden. The second volume, on the other hand, is monolithic, with less windows and a flat roof. This distinction is maintained inside the house as well, with the main rooms overlooking the garden, under the pitched roof, while the secondary rooms are positioned inside the tower. Energy saving has been taken into serious consideration in addition to the choice of technological systems. external walls have a maximum thermal transmittance of u=0,143 w/m²k. The existing plants provide sun screening during summer, while during winter they let the sun light through. In addition, the disposition and inclination of the layer on which the photovoltaic plant is set, has been studied in order to optimize the panels’ performance.
