PRELIMINARY DESIGN
A five-storey residential building with a commercial ground floor on a corner area is the topic required by the commitment. The project works on the selection of visuals: towards the sunset looking for the plain landscape and on the opposite side, towards the historic center of Sermoneta. This solution allows to break up the volume defined by the urban regulation and to work differently every single sides of the building: south and north fronts are planar surfaces keeping the two orthogonal sides; the west side is a section that reveals the interior, the eastern facade is designed as a wooden fund behind the pure volumes characterizing the cavities. The wooden surface consists of bris-soleil sliding panels that hide the verandas and they are able to modulate the entry of light in the interiors.
