Prevalence of horizontal lines in a composition of pure volumes of constant height is the principal feature of this home designed by architects Duilio Damilano and Claudia Allinio of Damilanostudioarchitects, as indicated by the name Horizontal Space.
The distribution of functions is organised to divide the house into two units, with a large living room in the middle spanning the entire width of the building and projecting into the garden in the form of a wooden platform. Cuts and hollows in the building’s volume reveal its functions on the outside, so that for instance the back wall, where the service areas are, appears more austere while the large glass surfaces of the main wall of the living room overlook the garden and the town. The home is furnished with designer furniture and light fixtures in white and red.The entrance, accessed via large steps at the sides, is marked by a pomegranate tree.
