Comano, set at 5 km north from Lugano (Ticino), is a little village at the foot of a hill. The plot is set as a kind of boundary between the hill and the new urbanized area on a flatter surface.

The construction stands on the lower part of a steep slope; it organically integrates with the landscape thanks to the verticality of two volumes built according to a strict regulation and bearing in mind the building height in order to preserve the view on the historical village on top of the hill. The arrangement of the storeys links every room, visually and physically, with the garden thus enhancing the feeling to be constantly at ground level. The huge entrance porch, that serves also as covered car-park, is carved into the hill as a cave; leaving the upper volume as if “floating” in the green landscape. The void generated between the main volumes, hosts the stairs that link the shifted levels at different heights and give the feeling of walking on the natural slope as if nature were part of the built spaces.
