The large plot of about 1,100 square meters, surrounded by the Mediterranean scrub and located in a hilly area, the colonial-style house has been built with typically Mediterranean finishes. The skyline is characterized by a view that embraces a north-east of the Gulf of Sant’Eufemia fading south-east on the Aeolian islands with the Stromboli Volcano in the foreground. The house includes a central core that rises on two floors with a hipped roof, enlarged on the ground floor, by two and with two flanks  along the main axis.

At the front, there is a porch, to the side the living/dining area, which extends into the terrace and takes in the view of the Gulf of Sant’Eufemia.

The harmony of the architectural composition of the cottage relives the historical culture of the places where it stands through the use of classic but minimal finishes, supported by a contemporary construction system enhanced by the use of materials and construction techniques that incorporate the best seismic and energy standards. Natural clay tile and counter-tile for the roofs, natural stone for window sills and thresholds to all openings, original  white for the combed plaster of the external cladding broken by the grafts of the volumes that rigorously and symmetrically rest on the central building. The sensitive and historic design features, such as the pergola and the porch, reinforce the farmhouse style.

The structure is made with a reinforced concrete frame. and buffered with proton-type bricks covered by the coating system according to the most current technical techniques and regulations. The roof is made with a wooden structure duly anchored on a brick and cement floor, the system is of a ventilated type to guarantee the greatest comfort in terms of thermal insulation.

The trees at the limits of the property increase the screening of the neighboring properties by increasing the level of privacy of an area with a low level of housing density.

This scheme offers an alternative to the previous furnishing solution. It is a matter of respecting the fixed wires of the building as well as the order and size of the holes, to invert the functional order of the floors, thus transferring the living area to the upper level and the sleeping area to the ground floor.

The solution provides the construction of three bedrooms of about 14 square meters with an attached bathroom, in a common serving area of about 21 square meters and the possibility for two bedrooms to have an outlet pertinent to the outside.
