The single-family house is located in Bisceglie, one of the most idyllic and charming seaside resorts in the Italian Southern region of Apulia. This coastal area has numerous residential and touristic households and is reached by all public utilities, even though it is outside the urban area of Bari, the nearest big city.
On the ground floor, the house project has an articulated volume that goes upwards and creates a tower overlooking the central patio. The L-shaped higher floor is more compact and intimate, suitable as sleeping area. The front of the house has a metallic cover structure gripped to a “glass box” hosting the living area. The colours of this area are reflected in a large water pool located underneath.
This architectural approach is clearly visible in the shape of the building, in the position of the openings, in the search for excellent exposition to the light and the sun in all seasons and in the study of the mutual shading between the house structures and the surrounding nature.
