built on stilts for flood protection / multi-level living / pitched roof suiting to neighbor buildings
The CASA D dwelling house is located in the centre of a flood area. These conditions and the existing gable-roof regulations were the decisive factors for the development of the house typology. The building shell was elevated, with the lower edge of the building set 15 cm above the highest flood waterline for the past 100 years. An independent design has been achieved in which the archetype of the gable-roofed house can be recognized through the split level organization of the floor plan.
