Private Residence by Archiplan Studio

Italian architectural firm Archiplan Studio has completed the Private Residence in Sarginesco, Italy.

Completed in 2007, this contemporary home features a unique facade with no openings other than the entrance. A small courtyard supplies the living space with an abundance of natural light.

Private Residence by Archiplan Studio:

“The site is located at a point between the square and the church of a small village in the Po Valley. The new building develops around a small inner courtyard. The front facing the street has no openings apart from the main entrance. Four metres high, it underlines the idea of the threshold conceived as an element of transit and delimitation that separates an outer world, without rules or qualities, from a controlled artificial one. The walls of the building have no domestic openings, establishing a selective relationship with the surroundings and providing a visual rapport with the only side with vegetation, to the east of the building, and with the inner courtyard.”
