HOUSING ESTATE, ABBIATEGRASSO, ITALY 2010




 
 

In the beautiful and peaceful country along the Naviglio Grande, at 20 kilometers from Milano, a new housing estate, with 20 apartments, complete an historical rural settlement, converted into houses and leisure facilities.
The new estate adoptes the traditional elements of rural architecture, transforming them into themes of modern beauty: the monumental brick staircases remind the grain silos, the wooden new pergola and terraces are a modern and sophisticated version of the suspended corridors of the typical “Milanese cascina”; even the brick saddle roof has been transformed into a fascinating opportunity to create a andscape of shadows and light.
