We start weekend, and bridge for many, with a beautiful house in Italy where you can see an excellent connection between inside and outside. The idea of departure in this project was from the outset the continuity between the two spaces and both outside and inside it has many captivating details.
The design of the house is from the architect Livio Consolino and has among its most interesting features with a spiral staircase in the center of the house, by Rizzi, which has an important role and that brings great personality to the house. The staircase is made of cement and its structure is completely visible, joining the ground floor with the first floor and contrasting the coldness of the cement with the warmth of the steps in natural wood.
The connection between interior and exterior of the house is shown in all the images, from any room inside the house one feels in permanent contact with nature, the large windows and the continuity in the use of materials greatly help to make that happen. The best thing is that this natural landscape that surrounds the house will adapt and change without our having to make any effort as the months and seasons of the year go by.
In the ground floor we find the common spaces, in particular with the area of being chaired by the staircase we were talking about before and in direct communication with the garden outside. A very pleasant place to spend the afternoons of autumn and winter, from the comfort of inside the house and enjoying the view of what we have outside.
The kitchen, the bathrooms and even the hallway, everything is created in the search for balance and continuity with respect to outdoor spaces and from any of those rooms we will feel really close to the outside garden and even in some way integrated into it.
The bedrooms have no direct access to the garden because they are on the top floor but they do have terraces, one of them on the roof itself. In addition, it should be noted that the connection with nature is not only due to the direct access to the garden, but also and largely due to the use of natural materials and colors in the finishes and furniture of the interior of the house.
