Fioravanti Poolhouse in Prato, Italy, details by MDU Architects:

“The place: a lot with a fine view located in the Bisenzio River’s valley the landscape is a sequence of wooded areas, fields, olive-groves. The land is articulated through terracing’s with stone walls.

The project aims a silent insertion inside this landscape. The pool is placed on the higher level of the lot, an essential water surface extending towards the garden and the landscape and contained by a half-submerged frame of cardoso marble. A path of the same marble leads to the pool-house.

The building exploits the existing slope taking the form of a stone terracing placed at the same level of the pool. The north front, opposite to the pool, consists of a series of stone blocks, derived from the ancient terracing’s stone walls and forming a counterpoint to an adjacent small wooded area.

An ethereal volume “leans” on the stone blocks: it is formed by a copper roof supported by a frame of slim iron pillars and it’s conceived as a contemporary interpretation of the barn typology. It contains an ample living area linked to the pool and the landscape through completely glazed walls with iron frames.”
