Entry Description

Since the end of the 19th Century, Gardone has been one of the most exclusive places on Lake Garda.

The location of the villa in a mature olive grove along the ridge made it possible to construct a central terraced landscape with pool. In sympathy with the expressive architecture, the interior design reflects the elegance and exclusiveness of the location with summery design. The range of colours, with their rich contrasts, is influenced by traditional stimuli: the aquamarine of Lake Garda, the painted timbers of the elegant Riva boats as well as the lemon-yellow touches from the surrounding lemon orchards. From everywhere on the site, one has a fantastic view of the lake.


Architecture is not just any old business.
It is an ever new, individual expression of perfection. Every project lives from per-sonal style to which we give quality of form so that it results in a sensual overall ex-perience. For what makes architecture unique is the sum of many small, carefully planned details. We create living environments that equally satisfy the customer’s personality and our high standards of quality.

Our working practices
With our multidisciplinary team, we have been implementing ambitious building and interior design projects since 1994. We work in an informal, professional atmosphere, which is characterised by our passion for the job, both within the office and in our dealings with our clients. Top-class projects can result only from reliable partnership relations. In ideal circumstances, these then lead to further planning tasks that are characterised by our longstanding expertise and the confidence of our customers.

Style and quality
Premium quality is shown on the one hand by pioneering architecture, and on the other by the appreciation of beauty and tradition. In the course of time, we have de-veloped a sense of quality that is based on sustainable, durable materials and efficient technologies. At the same time, we design classical and modern buildings and spatial concepts. In this sense, our projects can look back over a wonderful history while being completely up-to-date. The respective values simply add up.

Interdisciplinary core competence
Our strength lies in viewing architecture and interior design holistically and in plan-ning across all disciplines. Both subject areas must be complementary in design, tech-nique and quality, even if the planning task applies to one side only. Our competence lies in the dialogue between the two disciplines that leads to a charismatic overall result.
