House of Dust in Rome, Italy by Antonino Cardillo architect

In this house classical orders and proportions celebrate dust. The golden section divides the sides of the living room: a light grey base supports a ceiling of rustic plaster of the colour of the bare earth. Craving for primordial caverns, for Renaissance grotesques, for nymphaeums in Doria Pamphilj, for faintly Liberty façades in the streets off Via Veneto.

A balanced sequence of compressions and dilatations makes up the space of the house. On the walls, passages and windows appear, now dug out of the base, now like carvings in a baguette. A series of arches, abstract memories of fourteenth century Italian painting, disguise doors and cupboards. Among these, one studded with a pink glass doorknob introduces the intimate rooms, which too are distinguished by the palest pink on the walls: yearning for dawns and flowers, the colour of beauty, the colour of beauty that dies.

Lately he has worked for the London Design Festival at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Antonino Cardillo is an itinerant architect. Active worldwide, through his works he explores the boundaries between ancient and modern languages. His architectonic spaces attempt to get to a new syncretic synthesis reconciling different world views, beliefs, traditions and cultures: he interprets Architecture as a way to bridge differences.
