Italian architecture studio LCA Architetti used natural and recyclable construction materials, including a timber structure, straw insulation and cladding made from cork, to create a sustainable home in Magnago, Italy.
LCA Architetti’s design is intentionally pared-back, in the hope of keeping the focus on the home’s rural surroundings and reducing its environmental impact.
The facade of the residence was wrapped in weathering steel and recalls the shape of a mountain beetle, which the home is inspired by.
The studio designed the home to be fire-resistant due to it being in an area that experiences yearly wildfires.
The tiles are coloured grey, blue and green and have been treated with a pearlescent glaze which makes them appear to shift colours depending on the sunlight during the day.
The Nishiji Project is a house and art gallery in the coastal city of Chiba, Japan, that is clad in the country’s traditional kawara tiles, which were blackened to resist salt damage.
