House B2 is a minimal home located in Bergamo, Italy, designed by Co.Modo. The project, conceived as a contemporary two-family dwelling, marries modernity with the essence of the locale, striking a delicate balance between the two. The design is a keen reflection of the local architecture, albeit with a modern twist, presenting itself as a cohesive unit with a sharp, pitched roof that complements the undulating landscape surrounding it. The architectural essence of the building is significantly characterized by its well-articulated facades. Each facade, structured within a pronounced tectonic framework, offers a unique visual panorama, catering to both, the views from within the residence and the perspectives from which the structure can be appreciated externally.

This design approach facilitates not only aesthetic satisfaction but also ensures an ever-changing play of light and shadow across the different facades. A distinguishing feature of House B2 is its sharply pitched roof, which extends gracefully over the building, mingling effortlessly with the sky and the adjoining landscape. Its prominence is further elevated through the thoughtful integration of concealed utilities like rainwater pipes, enhancing the overall visual purity of the structure. This element not only exudes a sense of lightness but also asserts a certain autonomy, embodying a seamless blend of form and function. Inside, the house is bifurcated into two self-sufficient apartments, each occupying a separate floor, adhering to the clients’ specifications.

The interiors pay homage to minimalist aesthetics, where functionality meets understated elegance. The living areas are conceptualized to be versatile spaces, adaptable to various needs and purposes. The core of the interior design lies in the subtlety of its details; full-height doors and windows, unadorned surfaces, and the harmonious convergence of different materials showcasing their inherent textures. Moreover, the interiors champion the principle of ‘less is more’, where the ornamental aspect is inherently embedded within the refined details such as the sophisticated junctions between walls and floors or ceilings and walls.

These aspects, subtly highlighted, act as the true adornments of the space, offering a graceful glimpse into the craftsmanship involved. The technological prowess of House B2 is not to be overlooked. Ingeniously incorporated within the design are state-of-the-art building systems that align with the minimalist narrative of the house. Noteworthy among these is the ceiling radiant panel system that doubles as a false ceiling, negating the necessity for conventional grilles, and ensuring an unobtrusive air circulation system through strategic reveals between walls and ceilings.
