Landscape wow effect

Having a swimming pool often means being able to enjoy the natural context in which the house is located without necessarily moving to the sea on the hottest days.

It is a extraordinary retreat out of this world, which appears to be enclosed in a tropical embrace of dense palm trees (‘areca’, in the local idiom). The building is carefully positioned on the lot, with well-distributed spaces, to preserve the small pre-existing forest as much as possible.

The openings directly connect the interiors with the garden and with the swimming pool, surrounded by tall plants.

With its local stone cladding, the architecture signed by Lorenzo Guzzini fits harmoniously into the landscape, recovering forms and materials from the past.

There are many Italian architectures of this type, such as the spectacular villa in Liguria designed by m2atelier, a holiday home for a Milanese couple, discreetly inserted into the landscape overlooking the blue. Seven bedrooms with en suite bathrooms to welcome guests and a private swimming pool located a few meters from the rocks. The architects tell: «It takes 5 or 6 minutes to go up from the pool to the house, so we decided to equip the outdoor area near the sea with an outdoor kitchen and a bathroom ». In order not to miss anything.
