It is a 150 m² ca. apartment delineated inside a larger dwelling and located in the attic of a 1970s building in Palermo. The project aims to structure the living spaces meant for a family of four. The client is an art collector and specifically required the creation of an exhibition space where he could arrange part of his private contemporary art collection. The planimetry of the building is clear and well-defined. It is divided in an entrance/gallery, a central living area and an adjoining main kitchen connected to the terrace. A central volume, extending longitudinally for 8 mt., serves as filter between the sleeping area and the living area. It functions both as service space and passage between the two areas. The fireplace is made of fair-faced concrete using the traditional wooden formwork technique on site. It is located in a central position in relation to the southern side of the living room and has a symbolic and functional role in the house. The emphasis placed on the use of natural materials, such as marble and wood, represents, along with the fireplace, the mark of the building.
