Seeing not seeing
Terrazza di una casa a Roma
Location Roma, Italy
Description Between the living room of the house and the unappealing view of the surrounding buildings there is only a small balcony whose reduced depth cannot accommodate the use of vegetation as visual screening.
The project explores the idea of the "diaphragm" through the use of metal fabrics as sun awnings. This gives the effect of breaking up the light and the view, a unique atmosphere in which an orange tree, a pythosphorus and grapefruit tree stand out thanks to their sculptural posture.
