In our round-up of modern houses in Italy that blend old and new, we showcased a futuristic apartment building that offers a very contemporary take on the regional vernacular. The color palette of existing houses in the area informed the choice of materials, and building codes mandated a pitched roof, but the structure boasts a highly geometric form that stands out from its neighbors.
