DESCRIPTION:

The intervention dominates the Monte Argentario with a work camouflaged in perfect harmony to the terraced architecture and the culture of Porto Ercole. The house is carved into the rock, the luxuriant vegetation enveloped in colorful bougainvillea frames the large windows that face onto the terrace overlooking the gulf. Measured references to naval architecture playfully animate the environments: parapet nets in the children’s rooms, lanterns, and a large porthole with iron hoops frame the landscape. From the Mediterranean coasts pieces of ethnic furnishings have been added, from the Tuscan hinterland traditional handcrafted furniture, found with patience in local markets. The headboards elegantly crafted by artisans in wrought iron, draw attention to the luminous walls. The only chromatic counterpoints, in respect to the warmth of Tuscan stone and terracotta, are the blue accents in the velvet sofa and the bright red on the outdoor benches.
