the fisherman’s house by italian studio elasticospa in collaboration with cesario carena morphologically layers the many characteristics that makeup the client in a comprehensive project perfectly integrated into its site. the residence revolves around the relationship between the original early 20th-century residence and the contemporary concrete addition, connected by a pergola buffer space shaded by wisteria plants. a variety of volumesand materials create individual functions that allow the flexibility to entertain larger audiences or serve a smaller private party. the annex extends spatially and visually into the landscape – a gentle-sloping green roof emerges from grade lined by smoothed concrete retaining walls, ending on thesoutheast side of the site as a cantilevered glass-facade mass projecting over a garden framing views of the surrounding trees. manual horizontal louversscreen solar gain from overheating the interior living room space. a linear exterior staircase separates the western area of the house from the elevatedvolumes rendered in a contrastingly vertical wood-formed concrete. the ground level contains a three-car garage and the structurally separate massabove containing a private bedroom that connects to the existing household.
