A country house reinterprets the Po valley historical space named porta morta in contemporary terms, defining an hollow space that becomes the fulcrum of architecture. two side wings help to ground the house in the plot: they slide on each other by a transparent double height passing through space on the ground which links and connects the spaces of the bedrooms / studio on the first floor through an hanging balcony. the porch as a solar diaphragm and jasmine canopy configures the open-air extension of the living room, while the first floor rooms extend the house towards the landscape.
