Contemporary Monolithic House With a Frame by Andrea Oliva Architetto
Meet Casa Sulla Morella, an exquisite sustainable house equipped with solar panels, designed by Andrea Oliva Architetto in Castelnovo Sotto, Reggio Emilia, Italy. The residential project has an intriguing smart design aiming to get the utmost of the sun’s light and warmth while keeping a very modern look. “Inserted between rural landscape and observer to 60 mt from the road, suspended by the ground to protection of the tall stratum of superficial wather and to memory of the installations “terramare”, the residence is composed of two staggered elements to northeast: the porch or climatic mitigator and the housing space or insulating body.”
Floor-to-ceiling windows allow the natural light to flood the interior creating a warm home environment. The rectangular parallelepiped house, with a white frame surrounding it, is structured on two levels. It boasts a huge cut out, which create a magical atmosphere during nighttime. Due to the special lighting system, the house literally glows in the dark. Its monolithic aspect and its simplicity make Casa Sulla Morella stand out. The interior is bright, airy and the dominant colours are different shades of browns and beige.
