Concrete house with pool in Urgnano, Italy
The exclusive Concrete house is a design by the architecture studio Matteo Casari architetti. With regard to the typological and stylistic selection options, the building appears rather simple. Despite its strict geometry and concrete front, the house blends in very well with its surroundings. The visual relationship with the surroundings is reinforced by full glazing. Indoor and outdoor spaces are in harmony with each other. Concrete was used as a building material both outside and inside. Living rooms are open and generously lit..
Concrete house designed with a lot of glass and transparency
The private Concrete house with pool offers security behind thick concrete walls. The living space is 1,570 square meters. Naturalness was achieved in the living area through the use of light. Walls made of cool exposed concrete contrast with subtle colored home accessories that convey warmth. The interaction between anthracite surfaces and light creates the effect of a special sheen.
