Architect Valbonesi designed this private residence near Chieti, Italy as a space where traditional and historic materials are perfectly integrated into the modern and contemporary style of the villa. Capoferri have designed large, automated sliding windows which create a sense of permeability and transparency – a dialogue between the minimalism of the interiors and the nature surrounding it. The external oak windows express austerity and rigour. Specifically designed and made to measure they feature special hardware that allows both swing and lift&slide operation, creating a monumental frontal that is both permeable and sealed in a play between verticality versus horizontality of the cladding. The result is a residence which is elegant and evocative, while at the same time instilling strength and safeness.
