Sited in the diffuse sprawl of the Italian Adriatic coast, Giovanni Vaccarini created minimalist suburban house in 540m2 area called House Capece_Venanzi, then called House C+V. The idea is to construct a building with an “inverse” guideline: not oriented towards the city, but towards the hill. The hill becomes a sort of “green sea” on which people can overlook. The main compositional topic of the house is the transposition to macro-scale of the pieces of the Tetris game. The two opposite volumes put in scene two different parts of the building. Their diversity is emphasized using different material treatment: a base covered with stone and a volume of white plaster. The base in stone “is cut” on the west side with a “top to bottom” glass wall.
