Description Change this

House built in a birch forest between Osmate and Taino, near Lake Maggiore. The house plan is articulated in order to avoid the felling of large trees. The living areas (day, night, parents, children and guests) differ through these joints, giving rise to more or less deep coves that house the trees. The house consists of a perimeter wall in exposed concrete, with many openings towards the outside and very few walls inside: the separations of the rooms are obtained with sliding doors and with differentiation of dimensions.
