The living area is on the first floor. It includes the kitchen, the dining area, the sitting room, a patio and a Japanese room or washitsu. The living room has a polygonal shape with seven sides. It’s a bright and airy space. At the rear of the house there was a small space between the kitchen and the Japanese room that has been turned into a patio. These two rooms are connected to the living room through two low doorways. This is a lovely home with beautiful interior decors and with beautiful contemporary architecture. Both the exterior and the interior of the residence feature modern lines and a certain simplicity that makes everything special.{found on archdaily and pics by Antonino Cardillo}
