Located in the Forlì countryside, ElleVuElle’s sensitive house project is inspired by the surrounding plains
Casa Esse, completed in 2013 is defined by the two thick brick walls that stand either side of the living spaces, inspired by the remains of a system designed to control the flow of surface water. The form, materials and colours all draw from a nearby walnut grove, the natural stone contrasting with Corten openings. In plan, a route straight through the centre of the residence further reinforces its layered horizontality, a rearranging of the lines that once defined the landscape.
