tucked away in the picturesque hills of turin, italian firm fl architetti has completed a single family residence for a couple and their three children. responding to the client’s need for durability and low maintenance, the architects have designed a concrete structure with two visually contrasting forms: one defined by the same concrete and glass, and the other by a thin screen of corten slats that diffuse direct light and open in large sections to create semi-private exterior zones outside of each bedroom. the brief also called for large open spaces, as the family frequently entertains guests and friends, which led to a the organization of open-plan social areas. bedrooms are located along the south-eastern wing of the home behind the corten lattice wall, enjoying plenty of sunlight and views over the terraced yard and pool. a linear hallways stretches the length of the building along the east-west axis embedded into the hillside. a skylight runs along the northernmost partition of the corridor washing the wall with light throughout the day.
