building engineering‘s ‘pinamare’ is a housing complex is characterized by its pertinent integration with the ligurian environmental context of italy. through a succession of waterfront terracing lying on a slope field, each floor of the facility has the possibility of having a patio facing the bay, therefore providing the real sensation of being in a ground floor villa on the beach.

the units affected by the renovation are adjacent to one another and are located on the sixth and last floors of the residence. this privileged position within the site is exploited for its accommodation of the vast outdoor space and of the garden situated uphill towards the secondary building’s access street.

the broad glass windows are the flexible wings that separate the interior environment from the exterior, creating the opportunity to expand the white, luminous and welcoming living rooms towards the sea. meanwhile, the bedrooms and the bathrooms are located on the rear, overlooking the quiet and fresh topography of pinewood. the landscaping develops itself in a progression of different areas alongside the main path. green fields of resting areas over wood planking and an evocative expanse of water contribute to the overall aesthetic. in addition, a projected illumination system made possible by home automation technologies highlights the natural environment during the day and night.
