‘villa in toscana’ by emanuela frattini magnusson + pietro todeschini

 

the l-shaped ‘villa in toscana’ carefully leans versus a hillside

 

not much from the tyrrhenian coastline in italy, architects emanuela frattini magnusson and pietro todeschini have developed ‘villa in toscana’ as a modernist residence discreetly leaning from the side of a hill. formulated on a solitary stage in the form of a compact parallelepiped, the villa blends into the agricultural landscape of the reduced tuscan maremma, characterized by rolling vineyards and olive trees. positioned in these an intimate locale, the residence entrepreneurs can get pleasure from the privilege of isolation and immersion in mother nature. 

 

within, the residence features a lengthy distribution corridor that extends from the substantial entrance and living spot (open kitchen area, residing place, studio) to three bedrooms, which open to the environment and a look at in the direction of the tyrrenian sea as a result of complete-height glazed openings.

evoking timeless tuscan architecture + rhytmic repetitions

 

the architects based mostly the character of ‘villa in toscana’ on rhythmic repetitions and the distinctive texture of regional components. on a person hand, they utilized the nearby ‘alberese’ stone as an exterior content palette. performing as a thick skin, the stone is effective in continuity with a timeless trait of tuscan architecture, evoking its famously irregular colors and textures.

 

on the other hand, the interiors attribute a powerful ground pattern influenced by aged venetian approaches and the great interpretation available by italian architect carlo scarpa . below, magnusson and todeschini executed the models with area products: terracotta tiles, dimensioned in proportion to the respective room size and inserted into a combine of cement and carrara marble mixture. efficiently, the preference of coverings offers a rhythmic and material sophistication to the interior’s linear volumetry. view magnusson’s works below, and todeschini’s right here
