Casa R by Orma Architettura
Zuzanna Gasior
Apr 2, 2020

Casa R is a minimalist residence located in Sotta, France, designed by Orma Architettura.

The terrain is a succession of rocky blocks with a significant drop facing the Omu di Cagna massif. In order to correctly insert the volume between two rocky spurs, the house exploits the space vertically, having the minimum impact on the ground. In view of this context, the project is very mineral and is defined as a simple volume made of sanded concrete in order to bring out its aggregates which seeks to interact with the neighboring rocks. Like a block of stone dug in order to house the program, the work displays totally different interior atmospheres, made of sets of heights and wooden joinery.
