spain- and italy-based practice nabito architects has shared with us images of 'landscape infrastructure', 
a multi-level mixed-use building in anagni, italy. situated on the boundary between the city and the local
countryside, the design inserts itself into the landscape to secure views of the valle del sacco while
serving as a functional and spatial mediator between the two diverging characters of the site.

read as an overlapping composition of four pentagonal volumes, the design opens up to the south side 
of the sloping plot with the back of the building retaining the soil of the plot. multiple terraced roofs 
and gardens extend out of the topography to dissolve the distinction between architecture and land. 
an open plaza space connects the buildings together with a fluid circulation while providing a 
public platform for meeting and interaction. 

conceived with a focus on sustainable design, the project utilizes solar orientation for natural daylighting 
and cross ventilation, with local stones and travertine for flooring.
