“A dialogue between old and new”
THE MODE OF INTERVENTION PLAYS ON THE DIALOGUE BETWEEN OLD AND NEW
The reuse of Boscarino Villa and its garden is an important project for restoration of a historic building that would otherwise be neglected and degradation.
The Villa, once located in the suburban territory, was miraculously saved from demolition, although today all the space around it is greatly compromised because during the 70s and 80s in this area, were build several anonymous condominium buildings.
The project involves the re-use of the hotel Villa, and operates in two different and complementary ways.
The first focuses on the restoration of the body of the villa, the outbuildings and garden center.
The second mode of intervention plays on the dialogue between old and new: the interiors are custom designed lacquered wood and sheet metal. The staircase of the attached building and the room's corridor are in glass.
A skylight on the terrace creates a diffused lighting through the glass on the first floor it arrives on the lower floor.
