CASA G is located in Castione Andevenno in the province of Sondrio. The land where it’s been built was a vineyard, sloping from north to south facing the Orobic side of the Alps. To shape the project Alfredo Vanotti architect started from the landscape looking for a deep synergy with it and by adapting the constructive choices to the specifics of the site.
The structure follows the stretched shape of the ground, with the long side facing the landscape, on one floor, and the main façade is entirely made in glass that cancels the border between inside and outside. More than a house is a habitable terrace, which captures the sun every day of the year.
Another key element of the project is the swimming pool, overturning the front of the building by 35 meters on the ground. When it comes to materials and their combination, sand blasted reinforced concrete and local stone have been used for the retaining wall that make up the terraces, reducing to the minimum the use of materials.
