Fasano, 2015 (draft project)
The house’s entrance façade with its main access is carved from a pure and austere block of stone reminiscent of Puglia’s Romanesque buildings. As well as defending against weather from the north, the more closed access façade leads into the spaces of the house that are projected on the south side, with large windows over breathtaking views. The overhanging roofs, in addition to fragmenting and creating a clear contrast with the monolithic stone block, protect against excessive summer sun exposure, while allowing winter sunlight to enter and provide natural comfort. The base connects the house to the land, contains the pool and sundeck, and integrates the functional spaces needed to use the home, minimising surface consumption and leaving the site as intact as possible.
