White House is a residence for four families, which is spread over two levels above ground, plus one in the basement. The project was born from the desire to design a single volume that draws the icon of the house with a traditional gable roof, on which apply some simple modelling.

The loggias and some windows are obtained by subtracting the volume of the solid block of the house, while the roof slopes are pressed, like the keys of a piano, to get a more dynamic trend to the coverage.

The result is a large house whose shape is reminiscent of the old farmhouses of the Po valley, in which, however, domestic spaces are structured to meet the needs of contemporary living. Privacy and Sharing some common areas, become two important keywords in the design of individual housing, as well as the green spaces that surround the house.
