La casa sull'olivo

La casa sull'olivo

Claudio Criscione

The six-storey apartment complex fits into the natural environment perfectly. It is as if the architect was inspired by the typical olive trees. A number of 'branches' emerge from the 'trunk' of the building, indicating individual cube-shaped apartments. These 'tree houses' are characterised by the vertical wooden boarding (like twigs) and the green colour (representing leaves). Large south-facing windows ensure plenty of light.
