“Casa a Morchiuso” is located on the hillside of Erba, Italy overlooking Lake Como. The residence which was built in the 1970s was redesigned by Italian firm Marco Castelletti. A wooden screen was wrapped around the home’s exterior protecting the spaces within from direct sunlight while still allowing a cool breeze through, and the original pitched roof was replaced with a flat plane roof.
The walls surrounding the swimming pool provide a unique design feature, allowing one to float in the water surrounded by the sky alone. The space must provide for some interesting acoustics.
Rooftop terrace has opening overlooking the swimming pool area below.
