Casa CS

In Puglia, near Bari, moramarco+ventrella architetti transformed an old multipurpose building into an introverted private house, closed toward the road and open towards the sky.

Casa CS is a residential building located near to the main square of Bitritto, a small town not far from Bari, positioned in a corner lot, within a dense built part of the city, situated among very different buildings both for their quality and period.
The request of the client was to transform the building, formerly dedicated to different uses, into a private house. The project focuses on the new relationships between the building and the urban context around this new volume.

The house features a living area on the ground floor, a sleeping area on the first floor and a studio on the upper level, where the terrace creates the strongest connection with the open space. Casa CS closes off and lifts from the ground zero: the East facade is totally windowless at the basement while the South one is moved back and shaded using a brise-soleil and creates a little green space.

The stairwell is a hanged steel structure with wooden steps and brings a light beam from the large upper level window to the lower living room illuminating all the interiors.
