Villa Rambo

Studio Bellonio as Architects

Located on the edge of Roero Woods of the Piedmont region in Italy, Villa Rambo rises from a gently sloping hills, offering a stunning view of the Alps and Monviso.


The client, a botanical expert, established as main requirement to keep all the plants untouched and an house “hidden” in the woods. To fulfill his request the exposed concrete slabs were created with a mixture of dark and brown ferric oxides, and together with the dark brown bricks of the walls, the two main materials harmonize with the colors of the landscape


The exposed concrete basements strongly differ from the darker tones of the residential blocks, two elongated volumes extending eastwards and southward, flanking the site and embracing the grove of oaktrees.


To include a brighter accent to the whole construction a series of yellow vertical louvers rotate to offer sun shading to the expansive verandas.
