International architecture and design practice Plasma Studio have recently completed the “Dolomitenblick“, a daring geometric shape building located on a hillside in the Dolomites, at the edge of a residential area in Sesto, Italy. The volume was in part determined by the functional elements required to host six independent apartments with a common circulation core. A formal incision marks the main access and the division of the units, splitting the main volume in two halves. Apart from its functional connotations, this incision becomes the defining element of the building. From either side of the cut, a strip unfolds to form the balustrade of a generous covered balcony that merges with the surrounding topography. Following the steep natural hillside with each floor, the strips and the façade jump back.
