Residence complex, San casciano, Toscany, Italy (2th year)
A 22 apartments residential complex, designed in San Casciano, a typical peaceful town in Tuscany, Italy. In order to maintain the natural characteristic of the nature, and as a result of the fact that the site is a part of a hill, I created terraces in a way that the ground floor of the complex is being developed in 3 different levels. The complex has two main buildings, with a glass bridge that serves to connect between them. The main building has the common facilities on the ground floor, while on the first floor different typologies of apartments. Whereas the other small building has only apartments. The common ground floor includes: children room, gym, cafeteria, swimming pool, toilets and changing room. That floor serves all the residents in the complex. There are 3 different typology of apartments: -studio flat -small family apartment (2 bedrooms+living+kitchen+studio) -big family apartment (3 bedrooms+living+kitchen+studio) One of the main guideline of the project was to illuminate the corridor with a longitudinal sort of a "cut" at the covertures in order to allow a natural light to enter also in the corridor (an ambient that usually is not illuminated by a natural light). Most of the apartments has a roof sun garden with wood shading elements, while the alternative for others is a normal balcony with the same elements of shading. Underground there is a parking lots for all the residents.
