Santa Apolonia Villa is a home with exteriors covering an area of 680m2 and interiors with a gross floor area of 280m2. The building’s prime features are its spaciousness and its fluidity, ensuring spatial continuity from one room to the next and clear visual links between its different interiors.
The house is made up of three volumes, connected by courtyards that cross the building and separate its different rooms. On the façade, the Zebra and Evolution collections have been used to boost the contrasting effect of the different volumes.
Outside, the east side of the plot was set aside for a swimming pool in a secluded area at the back where maximum advantage has been taken of the sun.
Inside, the kitchen stands out for the way in which everything has been concealed, giving it an uncluttered, spacious organized appearance, with a kitchen island for added functionality. For the kitchen, the Millenium collection was chosen in black, using the Flow relief-patterned decorative tile model.
Another highlight of the home is the way the walk-in closet has been integrated in the bathroom, with made-to-measure furniture and a closet suspended over the bathtub.
In short, this is design project with the watchwords on functional minimalism.
