HOUSE OF THE MILL
The project, respecting the essential and the rigorous context, is not allowed to any excesses, but it traces its lines from imperative references: the old mill, the geographic position of the fields and the adjacent river.
A long and ancient stone wall defines the project area. The volume of the new compact villa is a strong, evocative element, due to its formal severity; the light penetrates in the interior spaces through tall narrow windows that cut the massive volume.
The entrance to the building is a double height atrium, which connects the interiors and the ground floor: the living area consists of a living room, a kitchen with a dining room, the guest room, a study and a closet. The plan of the building is dynamically articulated around the open space: the interior is visually connected to the outside garden. A covered loggia illuminates the kitchen and the dining room, allowing light to enter through cuts and recesses of the volume. Upstairs, the sleeping area is organized around a central corridor that overlooks the atrium below, and connects the three bedrooms with the bathrooms and a walk-in closet.
