17 Jan A new orangeries in an historical park
In the context of an historical property revisited at the beginning of the 20th century by the famous architect Alemagna, among the forests and the hills of Lombardy, the client asked us to prepare the project for an orangerie, in the frame of the full renovation of the whole park.
The place, strongly characterized by the presence of valuable architecture around the main villa, led the client to choose to place it as close as possible to the place of their living.
In sites where the landscape has a marked historical relevance there is often little attention toward more marginal and abandoned places, often buried by the growth of the vegetation.
On the other hand, these are the sites that trigger the idea to use them again, owing their optimal position and favorable features of size and space.
A former and abandoned barn, placed in a position offering one of the best panorama toward the landscape and, the village, inspired our project to place the new orangerie well inserted in the ground and in the new terraces.
This was an extraordinary experience, because we had the opportunity to work in close contact with the famous international artist Maestro Simon Benetton, who implemented it with the smallest delay.
Simon Benetton was for myself a true mentor of professional and personal life, owing to this great wisdom and sympathy.
