Casa L+G: A step away from the sea - Lerici 2018The story behind this job is as special as the relationship between the owners and their beautiful home: love at first sight during a random visit to Lerici. The apartment is located at the top floor of an early twentieth century building; the flat and its wide terrace provide a breathtaking view that include on the whole Golfo dei Poeti and Portovenere. We access the flat through the big terrace-garden where an outdoor shower hidden under a tree and a wooden alcoved straucture where the owners love to spend summer nights togerther with their friends. The apartment, with free sight on all sides, is invaded by light and it is composed of a double living area that welcomes the guest as soon as he enters: the transitional dining area and the livingroom more reserved and intimate. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and the kitchen complete the flat. All the living area and the master bedroom overlook Lerici's sea shore: a sequence of panoramic views impress the guest that might lean over. The interior design intervention has been conservative in order to give value and restore the original features of the property, updating its language with new materials and contemporary solutions. Keeping good contact with the owners has allowed us to make the most of all spaces through made to measure furniture pieces and wardrobes. The two bathrooms are characterized by the alternation of resin and gres porcellanato and mosaic: in the bathroom with shower as in the kitchen we inserted in the wall depth some 20x20 tiles, decorated with flying cars designed by Piero Fornasetti. The flooring of the living area and bedrooms have a traditional parquet, which have been recovered, while in the bathrooms we preferred realizing an eco-resin carpet. The sea and its colors are at the center of the whole project as a constant presence that measure the space of the home and the view that it is surrounded by.
