Architectural studio from Reggio Calabria, Pasquale Bonarrigo Architecture designed attractive living space in the middle of an Italy. No trees were damaged while building this house in the untouched landscape. The house is of minimal size to fit into the surroundings and offers comfort to its owners. A timber and steel framing system has been employed. The cantilevered driveway preserves the root systems of the surrounding flora. The house features an array of energy-efficient systems, one of them being rainwater collection. Its design resembles traditional local architecture with elements of modern technologies. It is located on an incline in the Pittwater area and its terraces respond to the slope. The views from the upper levels are spectacular and the owners can delight in the view of the whole valley. Large roof overhangs passively protect the home from overheating. The materials were chosen with respect to the area so mostly wooden beams from the local forests were used. LED lighting, daylighting and natural ventilation reduce the need for mechanical and electrical systems inside the home while opening up the inside to the surrounding nature. The roof collects rainwater which is recycled for use within the home.
