Located on the Sanremo’s hills with a stunning view on the capital of the Riviera dei fiori (The flower riviera), Villa José has been completely renovated by the Turin-based architect Giuseppe Pasquero of Cohesion Studio.
The architect has been able to convey the owner’s desire through a path of cultured and refined suggestions, aimed to enhance the interior distribution and the relationship with nature. The special focus on high-quality materials as wood, marble and burnished brass coexists without ignoring functionality and comfort.
The whole collection of the furniture has been tailor-made designed by the architect following an incredible chromatic dialogue: cabinets, doors and other furniture have been designed by artisans, who completely interpreted the artistic direction of the designer and his perfect balance between style and detail, neodecòr and contemporary design.
The three-storeys house is connected by two different stairs. The Ground floor is characterised by a fluidity of spaces thanks to the minimum use of partition walls where the living-room, the dining-room and the kitchen are condensed in a unique domestic landscape, perceptibly divided into functional areas.
The upper floor is developed around a wide central area: the big master bedroom equipped with a private bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe. The division of the spaces is obtained through a scenic wall of lacquered red, which works as a filter between the bedroom and the closet; a space completely covered by tailor-made armoires decorated with Canaletto walnut boiserie and embellished with an incredible alternated pattern of wood grain.
The elliptical Emperador dark-marble stair connects the main entrance to the lower floor: a space where the decorative lamps and the wide central sofa become the manifesto of the convivial need of the owners. A spectacular and precious boiserie – made of burnished brass and Canaletto walnut – frames the entrance to the room devoted to conversation and wine-tasting (great passion of the owners) while showing the architect’s obsession for the details. The bar area, the wide fitness area and the sauna-equipped relaxation space complete the amenities of the villa.
