VILLA WITH SWIMMING POOL, CASTAGNOLA / To fully understand the meaning of this design it is necessary to turn your back on it: or better, admire the view, which for the villa, is the point of reference.

The villa, designed by Gieffe Studio, is literally projected onto the golf of Lugano which is visible from every part of the house.

The lower part of the building, made up of the garages and the underground storeys, starts from a concave corner which, significantly, houses and embraces the entrances.

On the contrary, the residential part is marked by a convex corner which projects the two luxury apartments towards the lake below and, in particular, the large panoramic terraces which run round the whole of the main facades and finish on the East side with winter gardens and hot tub.

The relationship between the two volumes, concave and convex, enhances the formal reciprocity.

Another architectural attraction is represented by the broken line of stairs made out of the existing stone which is repeated with the profile of the garden’s retaining wall on the side of the new rack lift.

Drytech created the waterproof structure for the two underground levels and garages as well as the jewel infinity pool, naturally with a lake view.
