About Abitazione MK
The Umbrian Retreat: An Architectural Gem in Gubbio
In the Umbrian countryside of Gubbio, a single-family home stands proudly among the rolling hills. Its pure volumes and restrained designs pay homage to Umbria’s characteristic austerity.
Blending Tradition with Modern Design
Crafted from limestone, the home’s structure subtly extends from its base. This effect culminates in a glass-encased veranda, seemingly dissolving into the landscape.
Embracing the Landscape’s Majesty
Panoramic windows welcome both light and stunning views of the hills, even spotlighting the nearby ancient Castello. It’s a vision that seamlessly integrates nature and architecture.
Detailed Precision with Corten Steel
Corten steel details, both inside and out, establish a harmonious dialogue between material and design. A standout feature, the resin-concrete staircase, connects the living area to the intimate sleeping quarters.
A Haven Illuminated
Despite its seemingly solid and monolithic exterior, the house is a sanctuary filled with light. Continuous resin-concrete flooring evenly disperses this luminosity, while varying apertures craft diverse internal vistas.
