“Tre Livelli” is a tiny studio retreat above the seaside town of Alassio, Liguria in northern Italy. It sits on a hillside site terraced with traditional Ligurian dry-stacked stone walls.

Studioata integrated the studio into the site with split stone cladding that matches the terrace walls. The architects took advantage of the different ground levels by raising the bedroom area up, giving it an unimpeded sea view through the large living area windows.

The spacious bathroom is located behind the bedroom. The bathroom door and the interior shower wall were made of translucent glass to let in extra light.

The kitchen was designed as an intermediate level between the living area and the bedroom by building it on a raised storage floor. Drawers and storage bins built into the floor provide enough storage to keep the 35 m2 (377 ft2) studio free of clutter. The kitchen cabinets are tucked under the bedroom level with the concrete countertop only being revealed when a section of the bedroom floor is flipped up to act as the backsplash.
