Located in Rome, Italy, the Giancola House is a project started in 2007 and finished in 2009, designed by Nicola Auciello. The design of the floor which has differentiated staves becomes the main theme of the project. The designer accorded top priority to the full height windows, providing a beautiful view not only from the interior, but also from the exterior.
The stairway between the 4th and 7th level is in the middle of two walls, appearing somehow detached from the rest of the design. The project it is actually a merge between three departments at 4 different levels. The house is intended for families with children, but also with a high interest in art and comfort.
One third of the house (250 m2) was earmarked for community use. The dining room, kitchen and living room have a view and direct access to a private garden. Spaces are interconnected, with no walls between them. There is a relaxation area, with shelves of reading, great lighting and access to a second room, which has the purpose of a “playground” and which can be watched from the kitchen. At night, veranda connecting the two spaces closes with a curtain, ending the function.
