House in Empoli Design by Massimo Mariani Architects
Description from Designers :
The Stefano’s house is located in Navicelli road, between the historical center of Empoli and the Arno river. The project concerned the renovation of a residential building which was built in the earliest of 1960’s. The plan was to empty entirely the interiors so we could reorganize the interior floors height; in the same time we designed the new façade on the main front without any increase of volume.
The building is developed on three floors above the ground; from a monofamiliar house it turned into a bifamiliar house, with a few offices on the ground floor. Each new house measures 200/220 square meters about, both the two have the entrance door along the main road as the garage and a service room. The first floor holds the living room, the dining room and the kitchen, each one offers many different views. There is a terrace along the road which is shielded by an aluminium wall with laser pierced flowers; on the other side the kitchen and the dining room overlook on the interior patio with the hydromassage. In summer it can be closed on the top by the motorised curtain-blind so it turns into another room. A teak staircase connects the living room with the night zone on the upper floor which is opened on the river on a side and the city’s roofs on the other. A small green house amuses the home entrance.
