Rome – Beyond the glass is Rome, the songs and postcards. There is the atmosphere and the irresistible charm of the capital, is its urban rhythm and then there are the buildings. The context of the setting of this house is the Umbertine quarter of Prati, near the Vatican. The setting planimetric is stiff, typical of the dwellings in this area: entrance, corridor, culminating at the end of the kitchen and the bedroom. In one of these buildings Colavita family lives, better known, especially in the United States, such as “lords of the oil.” “We are a mature couple” – said with a slight smile the owner – and both me and my husband wanted to end up in a home intimate and reassuring that it was neither too much nor too contemporary classic.

The project idea – expresses the Architect – sprang from a desire to create a home that reflects the habits of the owners, devoted to the art of hospitality. The distribution is characterized by open spaces and fluids that overturn the original plant, with a clear division between day and night environments. In this perspective should be read three portals to-ceiling set the pace of home, balanced characterized by alternating full and empty spaces.

The stained glass, inserted in the thickness of the portals, as a semi-transparent diaphragms, filter visually the various zones of the living. Completely open them they put in the entrance to the living room, the latter with kitchen and study the long corridor cupboard, which leads to the sleeping area.

“My intention – says the architect – was to create a house that sharing with exciting and at the same time inspire a quiet desire for intimacy.” The reference to classicism, much wanted by the owners, has been interpreted by two horizontal applications that are developed on most surfaces, creating the leitmotiv of the entire house.

It reads in Greek made with the monogram by combining the initials of the surnames of the client and the architect. “I tried to put on the domestic scene that use clever details that so characterize my work, in which the contemporary approach transcends the modern and the sign is emphasized by the blend of art and classical inspiration.” A decorative purist, which dissolves into a rewarding cultural métissage where a surprise is the careful selection of furnishings.
