©alberto alessi www.albertoalessi.comThere is the task: to realize an extension of a three levelsexisting building, transforming the ground level in a newindipendent Villa.As every architecture, this project is in a context, andbecomes one.As every context, this one is multiple.There is the physical context. The geography, the morphology,the geology, the climate, the light; here allcondensed in the magnificent view. The project stays ona slope, facing the lake of Lugano and the Alps, with theMonte Rosa as silhouette in background.There is the historical context. The surrounding architectures,the way to build, the conventions. Mainly, theproject is realized in and out of an existing building of the'70s, that was itself realized that time on a rural small building.So that the new project becomes an interpretationon an interpretation.There is the psychical context. The client, the architect,the dialogue of both own expectations, of both imaginaries.The will to extend with no break, but also with noimitation the existing building, and however to transformit, to interprete it as it could be now, to adeguate the spaces,to integrate a new continuity inside-outside. And thewill to do all this today.The architecture is continuously redefined and raffinatedthrough discussion, displacements, precisations. So thisis a project of variations on theme. And the theme is double.Becouse the architect says My house, while the clientsays My home.
