A villa that went through a radical restoration, in a town in the surroundings of Asti that was an outpost between Monferrato and Langa territories, is the setting for a family tale. It is indeed an unexpected occasion for the main characters to rediscover their bounds and their ancient roots.
The driver of the project was that of creating a map that would give back a clean image, without any complexity in the environments, using sliding elements that would be able to create the greatest spatial fluidity.
The house is divided in two main areas. In the first one the living room is outstanding and characterized by different colors and materials. It is linked to the large kitchen, yet occasionally separated from it by two big sliding doors in fumigated oak. The furniture here is tailor-made, like the two banquettes lacked with polyester with a sliding top, and the library-wall completed with a functional ladder in brushed steel. In the second and more intimate area, a long hallway marked by high lacquered doors, separates three bedrooms and the marble-covered bathrooms and ends in the great relax area, the most loved part of the house.
