Dramatic modern architecture wakes up the once sleepy farmlands of rural Sicily. This area is very green and uncompromisingly flat.  It is a perfect setting for showing of this dynamic contemporary build. The horizontal terrain and the eye-catching angularity of the house make a seamless geometric connection between this powerful example of modern architecture and the natural environment from which it emerges.

Part of the regeneration of abandoned farmland modern architecture is transforming the appearance of the Ragusa region in Sicily.  This stunning project by ‘Architrend’ remains sympathetic to local history as it incorporates visual elements referencing traditional Mediterranean homesteads. Amongst these are the white stucco walls, a dynamic sloping roof and a courtyard style complex.  Originally this area would have been dotted with walled farms each one existing in some degree of isolation. Isolation can be good as it also corresponds with privacy.  However, it can also result in a sense of being ‘cut off’. Construction techniques typically associated with modern architecture have helped to reduce any undesirable sense of remoteness in this light filled and spacious home.

The birth of modern architecture arose through the utilization of reinforced concrete. This is employed here to enable the installation of floor to roof fenestration.  These magnificent glass walls create barriers against inclement weather and provide necessary security, but allow the occupants of the house to maximize their enjoyment of the wide open spaces which surround them.  To continue the theme of openness, although there are clearly defining borders separating this house from others on the grassy plateau, the architects state that these are

“…not ‘introverted’, they are open to visual enjoyment of the outside world, through the creation of outdoor living spaces, rooms without walls that become parts of the overall solution.”

These sentiments reflect contemporary ideologies in the conception and function of modern architecture today.  Most people do crave privacy but at the same time they certainly do not want to feel too cut off from the outside world.
