Maremma House

Magliano in Toscana, Grosseto (Italy) 2013-2015


The building is set on a hill surrounded by olive trees and vineyards near the ancient village of Pereta, in the Tuscan Maremma countryside. The landscape around it is characterized by gently rolling hills sloping down towards the sea. The view from the house sweeps over Monte Argentario and the islands of the Tuscan archipelago.

The house is laid out as three layers of volumes stretching horizontally along the north-south axis. The linear shape of the three floors echoes the dominating horizontality of the land. The arrangement of the volumes corresponds to the distribution of activity in the house as well as referring to a metaphorical stratification of meanings.
