Showcasing a beautiful wooden facade, Casa Prè de Sura rises three floors in the air, proudly displaying Austrian architecture studio Casati‘s view on a modern hillside residence. The residence’s gabled roof rises on a hillside in San Martino in Badia, Italy. The picturesque landscape was adorned with this magnificent modern residence maintaining an elegant display perfectly adapted to the surrounding environment. Horizontal stripes of wood compose the facade, interrupted here and there by windows protruding from the minimalist architecture, overlooking the small and elegant castello di San Martino nearby or uninterrupted hillside panoramas.

Inside, limestone aggregate walls absorb moisture and create a pleasant environment even during warmer months. Interiors, as well as exteriors, are based on a natural color palette, blending in with the surroundings but constructing a bold architectural statement. Designed with a minimalist approach in mind, this dream home surprises with its unpretentious yet elegant shape and constructive minimalism hinting towards the need for a more relaxed lifestyle.
