House among olive trees

Project Description

The house arises in a very regular setting, dictated by the mesh of olive trees in which it is inserted. It sneaks in between the trees in complete harmony with the landscape: no tree has been cut down and some of the olive trees have been absorbed into the architecture itself, as if they were always coexisted in a perfect engagement.
The building takes on the most recurring features in the surrounding area, namely a “poor” country house, sober and essential, with its low and compact body and its sloping hut roof, built with mostly local and natural materials. It is articulated into two rectangular bodies, joined by a glass hallway which allows a full immersion with the outside.
