Camouflage on Lake Garda

Set into the terraces that descend towards Lake Garda, a high-tech residence by the architect Gianfranco Sangalli blends into the surrounding landscape.

This work of mini-invasive architecture follows the natural shape of the land, adapting to it. The layout on three levels has been balanced to attenuate the presence of the building in the vegetation.

Featuring a striking swimming pool, the main volume extends towards the panorama thanks to large glass walls protected by concrete, fair-face or clad with stone. The garden is treated as a sort of patio facing the living area and the bedrooms, respectively on the ground and first floors.

On one side the large windows of the main facade have been made with aluminium solutions by Schüco to guarantee continuity of views.

On the other side, the masonry clad in Pietra Piasentina by Iaconcig establishes a relationship with the terraces in material terms.

The layout of the interiors is determined by the outer enclosure in a rigorous and balanced arrangement. The linear minimalism of the furnishings is enhanced by high-tech physical plant systems, including the elegant glass home automation controls of the Ave Touch collection by AVE.
