Private House in Sassuolo is a project implemented by Bologna-based studio Enrico Iascone Architetti and located in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. The building accommodates two buildings in a single compact volume, with more than enough space to serve the living needs of two families. According to the architects, the building was envisioned like “a closed volume, which bifurcates into two separate units, each with its own garden and no introspection. The rooms of the house are arranged around the patio, allowing the penetration of light into the core of the house. The privacy and quietness of the patio is combined with the aesthetic qualities and the expression of elegance given by the dark walls“. With focus on energy-efficiency, the building features thick ceramic panels mounted on a ventilated wall and a photovoltaic roof, visually integrated in the design of the project.
