Castel di LamaEdit profile
The client and owner of the villa is Scaramucci’s brother, an engineer who actively contributed to the construction by carrying out structural calculations. Both decided to use laminated wood for the cantilevered first floor that characterise the façade. And both were very attentive to the energetic matters: the house is in large part self-sufficient due to about 100-sq-m of photovoltaic panels hidden in the flat roof.
Like many Italian architects, Scaramucci thinks technology must be hidden and prefers High Touch – sensuality and balance of fullness and emptiness – over High Tech.
