House of Shapes is a bold and innovative project, which clearly stands out from the surrounding built context. The main objective is to satisfy all the needs and desires of customers, offering them an extraordinary and one-of-a-kind living experience. The concept behind House of Shapes is to fuse together different architectural forms into a single structure, thus creating a dynamic and intriguing aesthetic. Sharp, dynamic lines and interesting perspectives come together to create an architectural work that captures attention and stimulates creativity. The clear and dynamic lines of the roof pitches, misaligned with each other, give an impression of movement and originality, while the rigorous cubic shape of the master area creates an interesting contrast that breaks the compositional continuity, adding an element of surprise and emphasis. The change in the covering materials of the facades, from the light tones of the living area to the darker ones of the kitchen area and bedrooms, together with the patchwork motif created with white plasters but with different effects, adds a touch of liveliness and personality to the exterior of the villa . This variation in materials and colors helps to define the different functions of the interior spaces and creates an interesting interplay of light and shadow along the building’s facades. The titanium-zinc roof that descends across the fa├žade over the two portico pillars adds an element of elegance and modernity, while the black steel “tongue” identifying the entrance lends a touch of sophistication and a visual focal point. The five vertical windows that illuminate the living room, together with the large sliding windows, emphasize the connection between exteriors and interiors and allow a generous penetration of natural light, creating a bright and welcoming atmosphere. Within House of Shapes, spaces are designed to maximize comfort and functionality, whilst at the same time offering a stimulating and inspiring environment. The different architectural forms translate into spacious and fluid interiors, where the spaces create a feeling of continuity and harmony. Every detail is carefully studied to meet customer needs; the living areas are designed for relaxation and entertainment, with large windows offering views of the outdoor spaces. The bedrooms are oases of tranquility and comfort, while the kitchens and bathrooms are equipped with the most modern technologies and high-quality finishes. The outdoor spaces have also been carefully designed to provide a comfortable outdoor living experience. The natural stone flooring in the garage and entrance area adds a touch of elegance and durability, while the garden towards the living area creates a regenerating and welcoming environment, perfect for moments of relaxation and socialising. The porch that interconnects the garden to the house offers an ideal covered area for enjoying the outdoor weather at any time of the year, providing shelter from the summer sun and autumn rain. The strong point of the outdoor spaces of House of Shapes is certainly the most private area, where there is a spectacular swimming pool surrounded by decking which gives a warm and welcoming atmosphere, while the strategically positioned planters, also covered in decking, increase the privacy of the area, allowing residents to enjoy moments of tranquility and relaxation away from prying eyes. This area of the villa is designed to be an oasis of peace and well-being, where inhabitants can relax, bathe and enjoy the good weather in total privacy and comfort.
