Rapolano Terme (SI)
2017 – 2019
This is a farming facility located in the hilly Crete Senesi area. It includes a single unit with a flat rooftop, consisting of two nonaligned and rotated levels whose varying beveled corners become an architectural and design feature dictated - but also inspired - by the creek that flows next to the building itself. The entire vertical surface is surrounded by a sunshade wall consisting of vertical diamond-shaped aluminum elements with a hollow section (either fixed or adjustable), which are placed at different distances, depending on the use of the corresponding indoor spaces and their exposure to sunlight. The systems necessary to carry out all activities were carefully integrated respecting the style of the building and the surrounding area by adding green spots and areas in different places: the immediate surroundings, on the building itself and the roof, and along the facades.
