Villa Santalea

Every house gives a shape to the emotions, the needs, the nature of its owners; it guards and hides the private dimension. This villa, closely out of the city centre of Parma, builds a brick screen on the street side, celebrating a material which is deeply connected to the local memory; on the rear, it discloses with wide windows on an accurately designed garden, a swimming pool and on the smooth lines of the countryside of Emilia.

The villa is a perfect balance of monolithical shapes softened by the green, meant to be as one with the land on which it stands.
