There is a shop on the ground floor and six flats on three different levels facing both sides of the building: the southern side of each apartment overlooks via Crispi while the northern side gives onto the garden-parking. These apartments have different sizes (45 and 80 square meters). The roof terrace is accessible for the maintenance of all technological equipments located there.
The façade design creates a screen between the house space and the street public space. The frontage is completely flat without any overhang and is made up of a relief grille with horizontal lines aligned with the floors and vertical lines positioned without symmetry . The blue grille boxes have different depths so as to look like small lodges set back from the front or mere infill walls or access areas.
All external parts of the building, such as infill walls, grilles, doors and windows, have the same neutral colour so that the cobalt blue grille stands out.
The construction was built with ecological materials according to environmentally friendly technologies and low consumption energy systems. Our aim is an “indoor” and “outdoor” eco-sustainability idea taking into account the impact of the construction costs, the subsequent operational costs and the simple maintenance of the whole building.
