The Cyan House is a mid-19th-century building, in the simple style of most of the others on the island of Burano, in the Venetian lagoon: small, coloured and well organized.
On Campiello delle Gemelle, the white-framed front door opens into a kitchen with red resin floor and a characteristically large fire-place in the middle; around the fogher all the space is organized in a small volume of 5x4x7.5 m.
The materials with which these small fishermen's houses have been built are extremely poor. The project chooses not to distort the characters and uses two simple building materials: wood and concrete.
A gentle staircase travels up to an other two floors, consisting of one bedroom each. At the upper floors all the furnitures, partitions and finishes were enterely redisigned and made by light pine wood.
On the ground floor it was decided to use concrete, with different color and grain size, for the construction of the water containment tank, the furnishings and the staircase structure.
