Sugary House is a project designed in 2015 by Girolamo Maria Settipani Architect and is located in Alcamo Marina, Italy.
“White and bright like sugar”: this is how the buyers of the “Sugary House” have imagined this seaside apartment . From that explicit request, in just 67 square meters of surface it was thought to create micro spaces of conviviality and simplicity into the living room and cosy and intimate spaces into the sleeping area. The house, designed for a young couple from the north of Italy, is located in a residencial heterogeneous environment which is a few steps far from Alcamo Marina’s beach. The choice of white colour and the small size of the house allow natural light to ripple on the artificial light wave, thus softening the rigid lines and squared volumes of the walls. The entrance is projected towards an open-space kitchen-living room, that has its space fulcrum in the bio-fireplace located next to the surface of the original concrete pillar. The main window of the living room looks out on to the external veranda where you can breathe the fresh sea air. The open-space is contiguous to the sleeping and laundry areas to which you can access through two 240 centimeters sliding doors made of frosted glass, thus allowing the light to penetrate into the hallway, diaphragm of the bedrooms and the main bathroom.
