Point and Line to Plane
the project deals with the reconfiguration of the external area of a single-family house in Trani and aims to solve the irregularities of the area by introducing 3 compositional elements: the metal discs (Point), the linear vase (Line), the filter panels (Plane).
By their positioning they define 5 functional areas characterized in such a way as to conceive a single outdoor space: outdoor kitchen area, outdoor living area, relax area, swimming pool area and entrance area.
The linear vase (Line) connects the different functional areas, it runs along the perimeter and becomes a vertical green wall through the integration of different types of hanging plants. The red metal discs (Point) capture the user's attention and invite him to cross the different project areas, not immediately perceptible due to the "C" plan of the area. The custom free-standing filter panels (Plane) define and furnish the 5 areas.
The outdoor kitchen area is delimited by a vertical filter element with a painted iron frame and sliding panels in wooden slats that hide the equipment and the barbecue after use. When not in use they are grouped and extend the outdoor living area. The living area, on the other hand, is defined by the insertion of a bioclimatic pergola for shading and a wood panel which hides existing pipes and technical elements. The relax area is characterized by a Trani stone bench that runs along the perimeter wall, turning into flooring and defining the pool area. In this area stands a free-standing filter element with metal frame and wooden slats oriented in a way that they protect the view from the outside but not cast shadow inside. The panel is designed to also serve as a bench in the pool area and as a separation with the entrance area. This last area is set up with greenery, outdoor floor lamps and a votive element in red metal. These elements participate in the creation of different areas for pedestrian entrance and for of bikes and small vehicles parking.
The choice and positioning of the lighting fixtures was also an object of design, with the purpose of adapting the existing system to the needs of new outdoor spaces.
