2000 – 2001
Home extension in Bellinzona

A small extension, featuring a wine cellar in the basement and a veranda on the mezzanine floor, whose simplicity provides a contrast with the more complex composition of the existing building.
The materials used include bare reinforced concrete for the structure, wood for the window frames and panelling, and translucent glass for the parapets and windows; during the hours of darkness the glass creates a kind of lantern effect.
