The cultural value of creating architecture, the sense and atmosphere of a location and its history: these were the foundation for the designs by Studio Act_Romegialli. This is confirmed by the design for the fully glazed pavilion of the spa, linked to the residence, which is a Liberty-style house from the early 20th century, along a sunken pathway with a long glazed section that has fully opening sliding doors. The load-bearing structure consists of sheet steel and was set outside the glazed perimeter to add depth to the overall volume and set the division of windows into second place, guaranteeing the necessary energy performance to allow the area to be used in any season.
The western side of the pavilion features a fully glazed sliding window, designed and built by Thema, which can disappear completely into a structural cavity, meaning that in summer, the space can be used seamlessly, inside and out. Thema also built the adjacent veranda to the house, with large glazed railings and integrated shading system for a usable space connected to the historic part of the house, for a more direct, immersive use of the garden.
