Horizontal Space by Duilio Damilano

The Italian architect Duilio Damilano has constructed a sleek sideways home that showcases sleek, simple lines and substantial rectangular shapes.The house is about 300 square metres (3230 square feet), with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.

This building is not called “Horizontal space” for nothing. It is indeed a space that ranges mainly horizontally, not vertically. There are many rooms and a lot of space, but the house only has one floor, not even the bedroom upstairs as people use to. Everything is kept simple and nice, showing good taste and elegance. The colour of choice for the walls is white that goes with virtually everything inside the house, but every once in a while you can see pale shades of yellow.

However, this omnipresent white that gives the impression of cleanliness and purity is cleverly combined with vividly red furniture like the rose armchair and the visual effect is great. Big windows and wide terraces make it an almost open space and the overall picture is that of a “free” home.
