Contemporary architecture Abitazione Privata Urgnano, Italy


Verdellino-based architectural practice, Matteo Casari Architetti, have designed the Abitazione Privata Urgnano project. The contemporary property can be located in Urgnano, Italy.

According to the architects: “The house was built on a small lot within an expanding residential area. The conditions of the project site are interpreted by discordance and none of the façades overlook outside the perimeter.

“In the typological and stylistic multitude of the context, the volume of a rectangular plan oriented parallel to the main road, reduces the mute relationship with the outside to blocks.

“The anthracite concrete box, raised a meter and a half off the ground, can be entered only one way: the entrance, helped also by a slight fold of the glass wall that divides the porch.

“Outside, the only materials that characterise the building are concrete and glass, to which the diaphragm is delegated, not only between inside and outside, but also between the two different interiors of the house and of the porch.

“The basic rectangle is juxtaposed by the pool rectangle of equal size, the only element not contained in the box.”
