Casa Branca

Casa Branca, a project by the Architect Roberto Mascazzini and the architect Nicola Zema, co-designer. Casa Branca in Buscate is a new housing and domestic experience originating from the binary division of the lot that hosts it in ‘rows’ parallel to each other and perpendicular to the axis of the city street.

The ‘binary’ idea featuring the entire project area creates the illusion of a spatial expansion of the villa’s garden, giving energy to the basic concept of a layout in concrete partitions aimed to organize domestic spaces cleverly pervading the project. Therefore, internal horizontal and vertical paths are designed with a few internal partitions in line with the initial idea.
The skillful combinations of materials such as lead plates, glass and wood panels give movement and shapes to the facade on the rear garden without contradicting the clear and pure white masonry.

The domestic dimension of Casa Branca is fully expressed in the elegant sequence of indoor perspective views within a protected and silent private.
