A house made of stone and wood, overlooking the Tigullio Gulf
“Private villa with olive grove” in Liguria is a project which promotes a sustainable way of life. Located on a slope facing the Tigullio Gulf, the house has been designed by AGLarchitects.
The site is surrounded by a olive grove, with 120 beautiful plants which are between 3 and 4 meters high. Thanks to the excellent exposure, fruit trees can be found too – such as fig, plum, and carob – in addition to small areas used for horticultural crops. The project aims to redevelop the entire area, by introducing a new building with related outdoor spaces. Stone and wood (wild chestnut) are the traditional materials selected for the house.
The project includes a new detached facility to manage the farming activity, a new driveway gate and its boundary wall, covered parking spaces, removal of the architectural barriers, new internal paths, renovation of existing stairs and ramps, renovation of deteriorated drywall, swimming pool and barbecue area, wooden pergolas.
Location: Rapallo (Genoa)
