The Bronze Amani stone by Antolini is the protagonist of a kitchen space in a villa on Lake Garda

 

A villa immersed in nature on the hills near Lake Garda: through a large window and two long horizontal openings, nature enters the kitchen directly, making it a luminous space, an indoor-outdoor diaphragm.

Flooded with light and coolness from the vegetation, this space is surprising for its combination of airy atmosphere and solidity, lightness and character. These results are based on particular use of individual materials, suited to the environmental setting.

The flooring in warm shades of brown – made with Bronze Amani natural stone (in the Antique finish) by Antolini – grants continuity to the kitchen, dining and living area, creating fluid spaces and harmonious volumes.

The same stone has also been used for the very long kitchen counter. The continuity is interrupted by openings for the sinks and for vases with aromatic herbs. The table – also in Bronze Amani – fills the space with its sculptural presence, and contains a series of long wooden drawers.
