Modern House Design: Horizontal Space by Duilio Damilano
Horizontal Space by architectÂ Duilio Damilano impresses with clean-cut, pure volume composition with constant height and sleek rectangular shapes. The 300sq.m. house, which was originally designed to split into two units, consists of 4 bedroom and 4 bathrooms. The house’s entrance is characterized by wide steps passing by a pomegranate tree, planted in a specially designed niche. Standing on the front door, one can see the house’s longitudinal consecutive rooms, floored with warm teak covering. The vast living room faces the garden and offers extensive view over the nearby houses through its large windows. The wall opposite to the windows is covered with stagger white stone sheets. The kitchen also offers nice view over the mountain, framed by a horizontal cut above the work plan. The master bedroom is connected to dedicated bathroom through a translucent sliding door, which separates perfectly the two spaces. In the rear facade, which is much more austere, are the balcony and the entrances to the premises in the basement – a gym, garage and technical offices. In brief, Horizontal Space is a beautiful house with modern architecture virtues that managed to preserve the warmth and cosiness of a family home.
