This house with its romantic but very comfortable shape is located just a stone’s throw from the city centre but completely plunged into the green area of Bertinoro. Customers were looking for an isolated but easily accessible property and this house reflects all these characteristics. The internal spaces have been maintained as they were originally; the main restoration has been realized in the bathroom-laundry area on the ground floor, which has been completely renovated in order to make the bathroom wider and larger.
The original materials have been maintained and enhanced with specific treatments such as the marble grits flooring, the wooden cages of the ceilings and the wood flooring in the sleeping area and in the study.
The original doors and the wooden lintels have been recovered, sandblasted and treated to preserve in each room these untouched signs of the past.
In the main bathroom large-sized materials have been used to create an effect of continuity between surfaces; the wood used as wall upholstery behind the bath fixture gives character to the space and creates a backdrop around the wide Corian Antonio Lupi’s bathtub.
The wooden ceiling with beams was painted in white colour to create an impact of lightness and polish and it helped to make a not very high space more proportionate optically.
The washbasin furniture was handmade in lacquered Corian wood, like the big wall mirror, on which a very technical and essential design Artemide’s lamp is set.
The completely upholstered with Slimtech Marazzi’s tiles walk-in shower is the final touch of a rigorous and tidy space, well mixed with the rustic and warm taste of the house.
The whole house is a skilful combination of important pieces of the Italian design such as the buffets, the dark durmast oak Maxalto’s table, the Cassina’s C22 armchair and the Villa Venete’s sofa and the handmade furniture, with their sober styles and bright tones.
The bright and very essential kitchen gains personality thanks to the large heat-treated Thermowood durmast oak counter, the Mutina covering and the separated cowl that recalls a classic style on a modern take that perfectly suits to the house’s structure.
The choice of the lighting in this project was fundamental, from the most decorative ones like the Copper Shade of Tom Dixon, set on the large dining table, the Moooi’s Random Light in the bedroom, the Moooi Light Shade in the centre of the living room, to the most technical but with an elegant taste ones such as the Tolomeo, a wall light used in the kitchen and the Bacchetta Magica of Viabizzuno in the walk-in wardrobe.
The restoration project will start again with an expansion in order to create a separated space for the tv-room and the laundry area.
