The architects of the Giovanni Vaccarini firm completed their C+V Home in 2005. Situated in the Conurbazione of the Adriatic coast, between Ascoli and Pescara, the property is adjacent to a hill – an area that was comdemned as not suitable to place a home. Their idea was such: “Instead of being oriented towards the city, looking outward from the hill; the house is completely turned towards the hill — the hill that acts as a rising ‘green sea’ on which the house shows itself.”
The planning of the house can be defined across three levels. The lowest level is underground. An inner patio acts as the central element around which the spaces are organized; creating an interaction between the buried spaces, roof-garden area, and the suspended volume of the upper level (the ground level). The ground floor is the part of the building that holds all levels together. Acting as the border between the uncovered-roof-garden and the covered-day-area, metal (vetrata wall) and glulam surfaces wrap around the spaces; connecting the ground level with the upper one. The first floor consists of various rooms and private spaces typical of a house.
