Inspirations

A house on Venetian hills, a reinvention that started with wood

We are on the hills of Marostica, in the Province of Vicenza, in a multi-family home, initially only externally finished. Inside, there were only some walls and system preparations. The project was then abandoned for a long time. Therefore, the project resumed from an unrefined state, redistributing spaces and giving a sense and a function to a wide room on the ground floor and linking these rooms to the upper floor.

Ideas of living

An unconventional design solution was chosen: on the ground floor, in addition to the entrance, a studio and a large spa were created; above, the bedrooms and living area from which you can enjoy a spectacular view of the Marostica hills. The project involved different materials: wood, resin, lava stone and iron, combined in the various rooms in surprising and unexpected ways, such as the staircase with a resin floor and the wood walls and ceilings.

Fiemme Tremila wood was also integrated in the furnishings, becoming a trace material that accompanies and links the rooms. The choice was based on different reasons: aesthetic, functional, biocompatibility and healthiness. The fil rouge that goes throughout the building is Fior di Titanio, the starting point that has determined the colour and material choices. For example, in the spa, which is a triumph of woods, starting with Fior di Titanio determined the choice of other materials and other colours, resulting in a room that is a symphony of burnished tones.
