The dart-like volume of this family home in the Veneto region of northern Italy is set within a deep excavation, creating a single storey above ground and a basement level, with a sunken courtyard to the west.
The central roof plane rises from the east elevation, its lines converging at the apex of a pitched gable on the western façade. Following Palladian precedents, the design incorporates a pair of cross-views, orientated on the cardinal axes. A goal of the project was to create a building with virtually zero energy requirements and Casa delle Bottere is one of only seventy houses in Italy to have been awarded gold star certification for sustainability.
