Casale Marittimo, Tuscany, Italy
Situated on the top of a hill, the village of Casale Marittimo is privileged for its particularly landscape views: the view opens on to Tuscany valley and over a large stretch of the Tyrrhenian coast (The sea is ten km. away). From the interior of the ancient villa, between the stone walls, is difficult to see the wide landscape, because of the closeness of the buildings.
The intervention is an observatory- space made for personal reflection. The transparent structure, placed on the top of a house emerges as a prosthesis from the roof. From this space is possible to have a higher point of view and to see the wide landscape surroundings.
