A++ HUMAN SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE
 

RESIDENZA CASTELLO // PONTE TRESA

RESIDENZA CASTELLO // PONTE TRESA

The property is located near the historical core of Ponte Tresa, surrounded by the green hill that dominates the territory with the historic castle. It is a quiet residential area overlooking Lake Lugano that continues towards Ponte Tresa. The residence is part of a small existing building, as a continuation of the perimeter wall that delimits the property towards the village.

 

The existing building then becomes the entrance to the new volume which presents a compact shape, including two floors above the ground. While the garage is located in the basement.The brick facades open up with large floor-to-ceiling windows creating small pocket terraces, included within the building’s perimeter.

 

The new building consists of 5 apartments of different sizes, accessible through an autonomous block that includes a stairwell, a distribution corridor and a lift, for connecting the residential floors to the basement, with cellars and parking spaces. In front of the new building there is a green scenic area.
