Choice and combination of material, custom mechanisms, and their automation; this project features an array of solutions that turn an Italian private residence into a unique experience. The front and side façade has been clad with sun breaking louvers from Canadian Red Cedar and parts of it can be opened through integrated sliding panels and pivoting partitions. The most stunning visual though is provided by the knee-fold partitions; a bespoke mechanism that Capoferri engineered on the basis of a rough sketch by the architect. The windows, skylights and bay windows have been purposely built from different metals, ranging from galvanized steel to aluminum and stainless steel. A deliberate choice by the Architect to diversify the materials used.
