Villa 4L in Lugano. Fine finishes for an urban luxury residence - DesignOnWeb
The 4L villa in Lugano is a remarkable example of urban luxury residence, built with the help of Ariostea products, both outdoors and indoors. Inalterability and high aesthetic value, are some of the main characteristics of technical ceramics Ariostea, increasingly protagonist of contemporary architecture.
The project, consisting of 3 residential units on 4 staggered plates, is built on a sloping terrain, which is emphasized and enhanced thanks to a masterful combination of voids and volumes. As a result, the building’s formal elegance can be seen in its retaining walls, with rounded corners, which are actually central and visual elements that shape both indoor and outdoor spaces, which would otherwise be almost impossible to distinguish due to the presence of large glass windows
The whole project is inspired by the living area of the main apartment, “a void around which the other spaces are structured. And around this void is a swimming pool, a gravel garden and a large terrace.” In this way, the two smaller apartments rise up from the main residence, forming a complex that blends harmoniously with the surrounding environment
Sustainability aspects were also taken into account: a heat pump was installed as well as thermal panels for domestic water heating and photovoltaic panels on the roof. Ariostea materials, installed as a façade and outdoors, add to the unique charm of this complex, thanks to the Greenstone Quarzite Bianca porcelain stoneware collection, with a structured, semi-polished finish
As always, the stone effect perfectly complements this residential setting, while the elegant white chosen for the external walls adds more light and warmth, bringing an extra touch of quality and sophisticated appeal. Inside, what stands out the most is the use of Onice Bianco Extra, with a shiny polished finish, combining the harmoniousness and elegance typical of large white marble-effect tiles
In this case too, the entire room is filled with natural light coming in from the large glass windows, therefore light becomes an architectural element in itself around which the style and furnishings can be customized as desired.
