Casa Frittelli is a detached house for a single family. The house Frittelli, now – by the name of the owner but it originally belonged to the architect Guerri, was built in the late seventies after his Roman season. It is an extension of a farmhouse on the hill of Varano – a fraction of Ancona placed in front of the massif of Monte Conero. The old house remains the heart of the new house, turned into a double height living room. Along the diagonals, there are laminated, wooden trusses located. These are hung on the edge beams of the gallery – library that runs along three sides, while the last is placed a spiral staircase placed in parallel to the diagonals of the cover. The concrete staircase to the first floor is transformed into a much more lightweight steel that leads to a small orchard. The south elevation belongs to the lofts of the rooms, two large terraces covered by glass and wood that rework the possibilities of tradition.
