condominio via volta

1961

Erba (CO)

 

The building is constituted by a commercial basement, that today contains a bank (in front of Via Volta), and a six-storey residential volume. The floor-type is characterized by a compact plan, where a few walls are aligned to the irregular perimeter of the site, and hosts two units per floor. The last level presents a set-back of the volume: this choice allows to obtain a terrace that is protected by a cantilevered canopy.
