The visual connection with nature was the guiding motive following the decision of this place on the part of the client, a place with which to identify and establish an individual affinity.

These were the bases for the private residence by Marcante-Testa, seen as a search of the parts that in the design of the residential space are able of suggesting nice memories on a private, often extra-urban plane, presumably drawn from family life: the modern house as a depository of the most private facets of people and their mind, the home as the expansion of an outside in which to separate oneself from the metropolitan context and the world of work.

Elements like wicker, Vienna straw and linen that make chairs, accessorized dividers, wardrobe doors, the fake marble laminate of the kitchen table, the wicker headboards of the beds, join forces to stimulate memories of spaces, perhaps experienced in a “grandmother’s house,” reinterpreted here and rendered functional for contemporary needs.

When it comes to the decoration of the private residence, the view of the spaces shifts and modifies depending on the chromatic variations on the walls, applying resin for the floors that partly covers the wood to suit a “carpet” to mark the spot of the table and its chairs. The metal frames in the bedrooms, framing flowers and plants on paper, contribute to indicate places set aside for study and rest.
