A project for the restoration of the interiors of a villa belonging to a young couple provided our studio – in team with professional engineer Loris Ravazzolo – with an opportunity to redefine the rooms to suit the owners’ style of living. To achieve this we focused on aspects such as spatial layout, materials, finishing, and the design of furniture and accessories. The result is a home where strong statements are combined with decorative spaces and details for a harmonious yet multi-faceted effect, in tune with the personality of the Lady of the house. The ample living room hosts a charming relaxation and conversation area, where the “fireplace wall” – complemented by a bookcase entirely customised by the architects – provides the backdrop for a warm honey-coloured L-shaped sofa flanked by small armchairs in a bright shade of green. The large windows that open onto the terrace overlooking the lake render the dining area extremely luminous. Indoors, the bold graphic upholstery of the 70s chairs – part of the owners’ treasured memorabilia – has been paired with a transparent glass-topped table with a steel base. Entirely designed by our studio, the kitchen features a splendid floor of Emperador Dark marble; while in all the other rooms, including the bathrooms, there is parquet of “Vulcano” oak (ed. note: subjected to a special heat treatment), characterised by a warm and very unusual colour. In the bathroom décor, the walls play a role of playful contrasts – wood against Irish Green marble, with a striped motif mitigated by a large butterfly – and a mosaic medley, personalised by the architects, lending the room a very distinctive character. Great attention has been paid to fabrics and to furnishing accessories in the sleeping area, laid out to ensure a restful, intimate ambience through specific criteria, balanced colour combinations and customised solutions of illumination.
