Gangi Home / SAI Architectural Design Workplace
Textual content description offered by the architects. A home the place a few grandchildren and their 5 youngsters stay on the land the place their grandmother used to stay. The couple are entrepreneurs, actively working and interacting with a wide range of individuals. We aimed to create a home that integrates residing and work, and that may accommodate a wide range of actions as a richness. Though there’s a area on the south facet of the positioning, the residential space is separated from the sector to the extent that it can’t be seen from the road facet. The hole between the constructing and the neighboring land was made into an outer earthen ground with an open area to the rear, because it was crucial to increase the eaves of the home as a consequence of panorama restrictions. A terrace on the farmland facet, which might be accessed from each inside and outdoors, creates an outdoor gathering place for a wide range of individuals in a home that usually welcomes guests.
The inside area is organized with the water and different services between the 2 frontage rooms on the west facet, and the eaves, which protrude 2,275mm to the east, are positioned parallel to the outside earthen ground, creating an inside earthen ground connecting the street and farmland. This two-layered vaulted earthen ground area connects every area to the surface, creating a cushty residing area that enables mild, wind, and sight traces to move by means of from north to south whereas encompassing a wide range of actions. This area is each an entrance and a front room. It is usually a spot for kids to run round, for conferences, for work, and for the creation of concepts.
The actions (residing and dealing) of the residents, the place varied individuals collect, seep out into the encircling space by means of the north-south passage, creating a brand new townscape just like the “Wild Geese Street”. The metal staircase positioned on this “road” additionally capabilities as a structural fulcrum to comprehend a steady atrium area. The bookshelf space for storing that divides the inside earthen ground from the residing area is used as a structural component to forestall deflection and vibration of the second-floor ground that juts out, thus making a construction that helps a big area by means of a sequence of small parts.
As well as, the plan doesn’t assign particular person rooms to people, however merely offers a big area and a small area or workspace the place they are often major baskets. We didn’t give every area a reputation, however moderately took benefit of the variety of the “road” that runs by means of the residence, imagining a household looking for and discovering a cushty place to remain that’s acceptable at any given time, relying on their development, life-style, and work hours.
