Description:

“In a quiet residential neighbour in Padua, this house consists of two cubic volumes mounted on a concrete basement. The cubes above ground are made entirely of wood, covered with wood (grey/white and brick red) as well. The two houses have similar plants and are symmetric according to the horizontal and vertical axes. A unique flat vegetal roof covers both houses and is projected to the north and south in two large porches.

A portico in between the cubes divides the two houses and is a sort of private alley. There is no parking at the garden level. Cars are parked in the basement with a car lift. Particular attention has been paid to the windows: the wooden frame is in fact only visible from the inside while outside is covered by a glass skin.

The pictured house is composed by 4 levels:

– Basement: garages, a living-room (with a fireplace and a small kitchen on one side) which can turn into a playroom, laundry-room
– Ground floor: entrance, living, dining, studio, kitchen and a small bathroom
– First floor: master bedroom and 2 bedrooms, two bathrooms
– Third floor: a small guest-room opened on a slightly elevated terrace on the roof level.”
