A harmony of stone and wood

A family with four children wanted to live in a house built from natural materials, connected with nature and with energy-savings. In collaboration with the architects Nicola di Camillo, Lorenzo Raggi, Luigi Gardini and our engineers we have designed a unique building with larch paneling, a pergola and facade of local sandstone, which gives a special touch to the place called Forli at Bologna.

This family spends a lot of time in the outdoor living room under a larch pergola. With its greenery in the summer months it cools them down and in autumn, when the leaves fall, warm sunshine streams through the open pergola.

Two ships, connected by a corridor

The concept of the architects was to design a house as two ships, connected by a corridor, which is characterized by a number of wooden windows and larch paneling. The rooms are bright and open and because of a love for wood, the ceiling is also made with exposed beams. Sandstone also appears on some interior walls.

"The idea of the architects was to design a house as two ships, connected by a corridor"

In the walls and in the roof,  insulating materials from wood fibre with excellent insulating characteristics increase the thermal stability of the house. On hot summer days, the temperature is very comfortable without any need for additional cooling.
