Blast: Three single-family houses surrounded by nature.

The Italian firm Blast Architects (Milan) has designed three independent single-family houses, in the park of a historic villa in Gallarate, in the province of Varese.

Arranged over three floors, including a basement, the individual units are identified by parallelepipeds parallel to each other, advancing and retreating in the park, keeping a few points of contact on the first floor, while at the ground floor are separated by two pedestrian paths. The idea of a single architectural solution gave a coherent look to the complex, while preserving privacy for each apartment.

The three simple and compact volumes are held together by an element that runs from the roof to the terrace of the first floor and ends at the level of the base in contact with the green. This element is clad in stone Cardoso, as well as the outer walls solved with alternating glass surfaces and wooden brise-soleil panels. 

Each residence includes the basement with parking spaces and ancillary rooms, the living room on the ground floor and the other rooms on the first, and also has a private entrance. The large terraces and loggias dug along the perimeter, along with large windows that project the spacious halls to the park, ensure the interaction between inside and outside.

The outdoor areas are designed to integrate with the existing park. In the front area the green spaces present geometric lines that interact with the volumes of the villas, while the rear gardens gradually assume softer lines which blend with the historic garden creating green spaces more intimate and natural.

I love the way these houses blend with the sourrounding nature!
