Inside - Outside

Giardino a Fregene

Location Fregene, Rome, Italy

Year 2013-2014

Description In a fifties villa a series of punctual interventions are required throughout the years, involving the garden as much as the interior of the house. In every project, we seek a dialogue with the typical post-war style in which materials of various nature are used to experiment, both in their natural color and in painting them in bright tones. In particular “washed” concrete, painted iron, natural wood, stone and mirrors have been used. The garden, made mostly of the building’s borders, integrates the ancient trees with medium ones in order to limit the introspection with the confining estates.
