A unique family home created by Casati 


This gabled house in Italy was designed by Austrian Architects Casati. The design includes stripy wooden walls on the outside of the building, with a bumpy limestone finish on it's internal walls. Boxed windows project form the facade and frame views towards the Castello di San Martino; a small castle on a nearby hill.

A window that looks out from the master bedroom wraps over onto the roof, whilst others meet the floor so that small children may be able to see out onto the surrounding landscapes. The limestone aggregate walls surround rooms and hallways on each of the three floors, absorbing moisture from the air, which can cool the house during the warmer months.

The building presents an unique design solution which helps to make connection with the surrounding landscape.
