`Lighting, a major part of my project, goes beyond the physical aspect of the luminous element, and its effect cannot peter out in the daylight…`, Duilio Damiliano.
The core of the house C (Casa C), divided into three parts, is the living area where two large windows face each other. From one side the view can reach the landscape enriched by water reflections from the swimming pool which lays just along this visual direction, and from the other side there is a wood and a meadow.
Those who find themselves within these walls will not feel closed, but on the contrary, water of the swimming pool, the sky and the meadow will give them a feeling of spaciousness. The house is flooded with light and white colour absolutely dominates emphasizing its brightness.
The spaces are interwoven in a series of internal and external rooms. A glass crevice opens to the swimming pool, creating vibrant lighting effects inside. The white of the stone is softened by the wood which defines the external dining area.
Two bedrooms occupy the two wings of the house: one is for a couple and the other one for their two children. In the basement there is a mini apartment for the guests, the study and a large gym that includes a relaxation area enclosed in a glass box. These rooms are accessible from the outside through the terrace and big wooden steps in the garden, rising up to the building’s entrance level.
By night, the lighting plays a spectacular role, emphasizing the solid and the empty elements that give character to the house. The play of visual references becomes the main idea around which the whole composition of the project revolves.
