Casa Umbra - Umbrian house (Italy)

Project (Rome / Beijing)


In the "Carpini", a location not far from Gubbio in Umbria (Italy), the client posesses a small plot in the countryside. His intention is to build a small weekend retreat as a double house. While one part is for his own use the other gets sold out in order to finance the whole intervention.

Entering from south the building is elevated of 1.30m and the entrance goes first through an entrance courtyard. This solution is the result of the dislevel, but also takes into account that the provincial street passes directly at the south so that I decided to lift the building over street level, giving a closed facade to the Ground floor (with the kitchen behind, which faces east) and a generous glazing at the upper floor to catch the spectacular view of the valley.

The project foresees a small house of two storeys, cladded in narural stone. The ground floor is organized all around a fireplace. With severals sliding doors the central fireplace can become a cut out part whether of the kitchen, the pool ot of the dining room. Besides the fireplace a heating wall along the staircase provides warmth in cold seasons.

Important was the bathroom. Facing the garden side at north it's fit out with a spacious pool. On the upper floor there are the living room, a bedroom and a terrace. In order to give the building a clear orientation the living room orientates south.
