This project is an intervention of restoration of a building with sea view in Molfetta (Bari, Italy). The project has enhanced the natural light source connection axes. The different areas are not connected seamlessly, because they can be divided through full-length large panels running along tracks embedded in the faux ceiling.
The backbone of this housing solution is made by wall-closet located in crucial points. This allowed to free spaces from bulky furniture. Great attention has been paid in the design of all details. Even fixtures and their boxes are extremely linear, in continuation with walls. In the whole house whitened oak has been used for pavements and fixed elements. In the bathroom large sheets of stonewear made it possible to obtain a minimal design, at the same time extremely functional.
The house has been designed to be energetically self-sufficient. It is completely electricity-fed, without gas, but with heat pumps and a radiant heating/ cooling system, besides a solar power system. The achieved Energy class is A3.
