House Betta

Vicenza, Italy Architect : Luca Mottin Design / Performance / Security
Exactly from the big glazing surfaces of Imago, we can see a wide living room totally in wood. The floor, the trusses, the wooden walls and the furniture allow the guest to feel like embraced from the house.
In the middle of the living room, a thermal chimney recalls the old houses and warms up the atmosphere of the room.
The house reveals its best inside, where the people spend most of the time.
Imago becomes the perfect lift&slide for the architect: the wood makes the lift&slide alive and the big glazing surfaces let the sunlight come in.
