The Arezzo region of Tuscany has strong cultural and artistic traditions. This house on a hillside north-west of Castiglion Fiorentino has been designed to bring a metropolitan and cosmopolitan feel to the modernisation whilst still retaining the traditions of the area.
The renovation of the farmhouse has preserved the aesthetics of a rural Tuscan countryside building but has added a vibrant new interior that surprises and pleases.
The owner, is the creative heart of a famous company of Arezzo goldsmiths and wanted the house to reflect the richness of style associated with the design and flamboyance of leading goldsmiths.
Emanuele has interpreted owner’s wishes with interiors that contain objects rich in colour and form and also through the choice of materials used on the structures; from lime walls to sanded and waxed beams.
The rooms have various pieces of limited-edition furniture designed by Studio Svetti including: a table in solid cedar, a waxed and ash finished floor (recovered from the workshop of a local craftsman), twin lacquered consoles with metal inserts, marble kitchen surfaces that surround a hanging island plus a spectacular circular sofa in the ground floor living room.
The theatrical highlights however are the deep green vertical covering of the walls in the dining area and in the cappuccino marble topped table in the centre of the ground floor - an exclusive one-off design by Studio Svetti.
