Nuove Case 2021

2021

Nuove Case is a small block made by two atypical shaped houses with a shared yard. The plan of the houses is long and narrow (mt. 29x7) to use less space as possible on the front and back and leaving more space to the internal  yard that face the road.  This shape allows to have a great variety of use inside (especially on the ground floor) and gives visibility to everyone while is doing various activities in the house. It also allows to have an internal patio on the ground floor and two terraces on the floor above.  These, together with the big opening on the internal garden, works  as an addition to interior space.  Each of the houses  has two entrance on the main fronts south-north and a joint entrance to the space that enclosed the yard on the north side.  The shape of the house is dictated by the structure of the lateral walls that support the upper level and the roof.  In this way the walls are like big trusses that allow to have a continuous opening on the side of the garden. The shape of the roof improves the internal natural air circulation and simplifies the air conditioning of the space generated by a photovoltaic system.  Facing the patio there is a multipurpose room with an independent entrance that offers further possibilities to the use of the house.  The (imaginary) urban context is the London East End, considered one of the ideal places for this project.
