Apartments at San Martino di Castrozza, Trentino, northern Italy (circa 1967)
Set within the Alps, this apartment block was designed by Dr. Bruno Morassutti and Andrew Powers. It is essentially a series of vertically and horizontally staggered concrete boxes, each containing a 3 bedroom maisonette, with structurally open ends infilled with spruce wood. The concrete floors and walls are 6 inches thick and the interiors are lined with wood, separated from the concrete by insulation providing considerable sound-proofing.
The building also has a shallow pitched roof that allows snow to gather in winter and melt in spring, and drainpipes are replaced with concrete gutter gargoyles. View high resolution
