The Application Context
Inside the historical centre of Cividate al Piano, in the province of Bergamo, the project by ZDA Zupelli Design Architettura for "Casa Donella", a private house built on the site of an old farmhouse in disuse, has been developed. The project is characterized by the emphasis on traditional elements typical of the original farmhouse such as the pitched roof, the exposed beams and the porch where they were then inserted more modern contaminations in contrast. This combination of tradition and contemporaneity is clearly visible in the front elevation, where on the ground floor there are large arched glass openings, of classical derivation, while the upper levels are contrasted with current architectural elements: a large fixed window running on the two floors and a lobby that creates an open space but at the same time covered and perfectly incorporated into the elevation.
The Client's Requests
In this context of continuity between past and present, Ekinex products have been inserted, chosen for their minimalist yet contemporary lines and for their ability to ensure comfort and automation of the building. In particular, the client requested complete control over the lighting system so as to be able to adjust the switching on/off of the luminaires and the variation of the light intensity in every room of the house, both inside and outside, from a practical display.
