A staircase is extruded from the wooden shelves of a bookcase at this renovated house in Tuscany by Italian architects Sundaymorning and Massimo Fiorido Associati. Named House in a Pine Wood, the single-storey residence was first constructed in the 1960s on a sandy site that is closely surrounded by pine, oak and myrtle trees. The architects re-clad the exterior of the house in travertine marble and constructed a wooden deck around the perimeter. Windows are deeply recessed and some are hinged at the centre so that they swivel open. This is the second house in Italy we’ve featured in the last week, following a gabled house with boxy windows.
