'private house' by enrico iascone architects
enrico iascone architects
have designed 'private house' a pre-fabricated family house is located in an extensive 1960s residential spillover area outside sassuolo,
modena’s ceramic manufacturing heartland. it’s located between other detached houses surrounded by small gardens on a plot once occupied by a detached house,
now demolished. the high-end design used prefabricated wooden elements for the above ground storey on a concrete underground level. the thermal insulation
and humidity control allows for the building to obtain a class A energy certification. choosing joint-mounted prefabricated wooden elements provided the advantages
of on-site safety and assembly, that cuts overall worksite time considerably. the whole architecture is a play of opposites: a large apparently monolithic volume whose
more secluded sides have different size glazed lights giving glimpses into deep interiors and providing views onto the outside. the ventilated wall is clad with extra-thin
laminam ceramic slabs. its gray-black shades lending materiality and elegance. the ample use of wood is coupled with windows and door frames in burnished bronze.
the ceramic cladding covers both walls and roof, the latter also laid with photovoltaic film. the planning show how technology and sustainability can be paired to create
quality architecture and lifestyle. on the north side, the house presents a compact front with the ground level parking area. to the east, wooden floor terraces with glass
mediate the extended use of daylight entering the interior.
