FCN 2009 Holiday House By Maria Giuseppina Grasso Cannizzo - 01
 FCN 2009 Holiday House  

FCN 2009 Holiday House designed by Italian Architects – Maria Giuseppina Grasso Cannizzo, It Situated on the side of a hill, in a seismic area, this is a lesson in freshness of thinking, invention and in the inseparable nature of structure and architecture.An apparently solid plywood-clad box floats above the site, pitched so as to enjoy the horizon and the distant sea. It prises open by means of a movable guest-wing, mechanically operated, which slides away to reveal a terrace and a glass wall to the main house. The main fixed element of the house is constructed in prefabricated concrete.

The holiday house is located in an area of ​​about 9000 square meters, in an agricultural area in the countryside of Noto. The steep terrain is predominantly clay and planted with olive, carob and almond trees. The new house was primarily to provide a covered outdoor area adjacent to the living, providing vision to the valley and the sea with three bedrooms (one for the owner and two rooms with bath for guests), to establish a relationship with the Hague and ensure safety during the winter months.

The project includes two parts, a fixed built with prefabricated reinforced concrete and a movable iron structure. The movement takes place along two tracks anchored to the supporting structure of the terrace. The body iron in the closing phase falls below the cover plate in reinforced concrete, while in the opening phase extends outside of the coverage plan AC, generating a variation of the floor of the terrace (from 13 to 32 square meters square meters). The movable body cooperates with the panels, folding and pivoting to the total closure of the volume, and coincides with the anti burglary. The different nature of the two bodies is enhanced by the use of different target: the body is designed to house about the body and iron in the residence for guests.

The variable configuration of the total volume, obtained by the introduction of the movement on the integration of cubic volume, allowed to exceed the limits of the rules which did not allow to insert in the program required functional building volume. The positioning of the floor than the ground level provides a view to the sea. The placement of the pavement with respect to the campaign has secured a view to the sea.

The structure is made of prefabricated or manufactured off site to contain the budget and overcome the difficulties of access to the site. The structure of the fixed body is formed by partitions, prefabricated reinforced concrete beams and slabs and the insulation is ensured by a ventilated wall Okume, leaning against the outer face of the prefabricated elements. The interior partitions are made of gas concrete with cement plaster finish. The terrace is made of a metal structure on the one hand resting on reinforced concrete cantilever and anchored the other two iron crutches. The floor of the terrace is made of elements Orsogril. The external walls of the movable body are made from panels made with a double layer of AQUAPANEL with insulating and a ventilated wall Okume.
