Casa MM Lamporecchio, Italy
The contemporary renovation of this rural courtyard house has opened up the building onto the countryside on the south-west side, offering great place to observe the landscape, which is free of any man-made structures. The three sides of the house protect the inhabitants with compact walls, with those in the entrance area covered with large ceramic tiles, which reappear in the courtyard area. External and internal flooring contributes to the sense of continuity between spaces.
