An Open and Shut Home

serene-white-house

This home on Italy’s Adriatic coast is closely surrounded by other properties in a popular resort area. The design challenge: allow for privacy while retaining a sense of openness.

Challenge met. An open plaza area is surrounded on all four sides by sight barriers, allowing residents and guests full exposure to the outdoors while keeping their activities private. Further privacy is achieved by extending the roof and walls well beyond the glassed-in interior living area, blocking easy sightlines into the interior.

The simple, linear forms and predominant white tones make for an environment at once placid and refreshing. It’s a great Modern Monday example.
