Castle Inspired Modern House in Italy
Castle Inspired modern house located in Molfetta near Bari in southern Italy designed by Gianni Veneziano and Luciana Di Virgilio from studio V+T (veneziano+team). The house named Casa Privata MDC is a renovation of a historical building dating back to around 1850.
Entering the apartment you feel a unique sense of “daily equilibrium”, it seems that architecture seeks the formal simplicity and merges with the history of stone walls accumulated over the years, with the materials and furnishings, creating a “creative edge” isolated from the routine and sometimes even from reality.
The predominant materials are the concrete, left exposed in the two concrete stairs and cast in situ for the access to the three levels, the digital mosaic, that has wonderful drawings as well as watercolors by Gianni Veneziano (graphically processed and literally “spread” on the surfaces for 250sqm among the walls located in the different rooms, and mainly in the spa area, and, moreover, the glass, the woods finished with white oak for the floors and furnishings made to measure, including the kitchen area, which is instead defined in lacquered wood because it was conceived as something completely merging with the architecture.
