Casariga was born from a vision, from a great desire: to live within nature. Casariga is, first and foremost, our family home, and during the design phase, we felt the need to establish a few milestones.

One of the key issues was that we wanted to construct an eco-sustainable building both in terms of energy conservation and the use of renewable materials and energy sources.

The interiors are intentionally linear, sparse, and essential; we worked by removing as much as possible, aspiring to achieve an almost monastic simplicity, to make the nature that stands outside the door the protagonist.

At Casariga one arrives by car, but the cars remain above, in our parking lot; going down on foot one travels a necessary space, a distance that introduces one to a new world where the superfluous must be left behind.

The dark and the light, the sun and the rain, the wind, the smell of the grass, the sound of your footsteps are your new watch.


Casariga is a wooden house inserted into a fold of the slope and covered with a layer of earth. The effect is that the roof is the continuation of the lawn. This and the forest are one with the house, they are therefore very well cared for, but with respect for their wild state.

The structure as a whole is impressive, being a base area of 1000 m2, but the whole thing almost disappears into the landscape. Even though it is underground, it is still a wooden house with its characteristic smell that puts you in a good mood. Most of the walls are made of rough pine, the floor is made of bamboo and larch on the outside.

From the outside, you can only see wood, stone walls made with stones collected all around during the construction excavations, glass, and Corten steel, but above all lawn, forest, flowers and trees. From afar you don't have the slightest perception that there is such a large house in that place.
