Twin House in Padua

studiopietropoli. as Architects

Built in a quiet residential neighbour in Padua, this house consists of two cubic volumes mounted on a concrete basement. The cubes above ground are made entirely of wood, covered with wood (grey/white and brick red) as well.


The two houses have similar plants and are symmetric according to the horizontal and vertical axes. A unique flat vegetal roof covers both houses and is projected to the north and south in two large porches. A portico in between the cubes divides the two houses and is a sort of private alley. There is no parking at the garden level. Cars are parked in the basement via a car lift. Particular attention has been paid to the windows: the wooden frame is in fact only visible from the inside while outside is covered by a glass skin. 


The house is composed by four levels: 
- basement: garages, a living-room (with a fireplace and a small kitchen on one side) which can turn into a playroom, laundry-room
- ground floor: entrance, living, dining, studio, kitchen and a small bathroom
- first floor: master bedroom and 2 bedrooms, two bathrooms
- third floor: a small guest-room opened on a slightly elevated terrace on the roof level.
