Cesare Sala’s design for a private villa comes from the partial demolition and rebuilding of a residential building dating back to the mid-1960s. The result is a sober, linear style, that fits beautifully into the surrounding landscape.
The loggias around the outside of the façade are an extension protected by the home’s interiors, a filter that does not obstruct views, thanks to the railings.
The screening system for the loggias was designed carefully in conjunction with Thema, which also worked on making all of the windows, as well as the shades and the railings in ultra-clear glass with hidden runners.
On the lake front side, the large sliding aluminium windows offer wide views of the panorama; on the other sides, the hinged windows are equipped with automatised system.
