The project for a private villa located in the Abruzzo hillside, overseen by the ASV3 – Officina di Architettura and architect Valbonesi, stems from a desire to maintain a strong connection with the land, with forms and textures that recall its relationship with the lush surrounding landscape. This residence is situated in a hilly area near Atessa. The front of the site overlooks the valley, while the side is protected by a wooded area upstream.
Simple materials were primarily used: stone, wood and reinforced concrete, materials that strengthen the conviction of being able to create a building in harmony with the landscape. A residential solution that originates from the ground, binding itself with nature, while maintaining its strongly characterized identity.
Cotto d’Este was chosen by the designers to cover horizontal and vertical surfaces, both indoors and outdoors, with the BUXY collection, which takes inspiration from a kind of stone that originates from Burgundy in France, known for its distinctive colours and special punctiform graphic design.
The intensely natural effect lends warmth and elegance to the environment: rigor, simplicity and relationship are the project’s key words.
Buxy, in the NOISETTE finish, was used on the ground floor for the interior finishes of both the living area and dining area, as well as for the external garage flooring, covering a surface of around 100 sq m.
Today more than ever, doing business demands a strong sense of responsibility as well as the ability to be flexible, in particular at a time as dramatically complex as the one we’ve been living through over the past few weeks due to the Covid-19 situation.
Right from the start we instituted a series of strict rules for the purpose of safeguarding the health and safety of our employees in the workplace, in full respect of the regulations passed by the Italian government.
Now we have decided to temporarily halt manufacturing in our Italian sites, which will remain closed for three weeks as of this Friday 20th March because of an external economic situation that is momentarily impacting negatively the market.
Nevertheless, the company is not closing.
We are here for you, and for those who wish to continue choosing our products and to whom we will guarantee the best commercial assistance and an efficient delivery service.
We are still here, with our continuous innovation and our ongoing research into new products and solutions that we will soon be proud to launch.
We will come back even stronger than before, ready for the new challenges that await us!
