Perched on a rocky slope between pines with a waterway at its feet, Casa Barone is an ultra-modern hillside house designed by Sweden architects WRB. In sharp contrast to its more traditional neighbors, this contemporary Swedish house plan features a flat roof and a minimalist black exterior framing its massive windows. The main part of the house is concealed underground within the steep hillside, where large horizontal platform creates a nice living and entertaining area. Half of this space is occupied by an upper living level, while the other half is open to the outdoors and connects to the kitchen. The house was designed for a young Italian painter and his Swedish wife so a studio space was a must, where the homeowner can work and be inspired by the surroundings. WRB.
