g house / by George Maroussis

This week we are feeling inspired by the G House in Como, Italy by architect Lorenzo Guzzini.  It is a clean and simple renovation of an abandoned 19th century villa that uses texture to contrast the whitewashed existing stone and new interior brick walls that recreate the feeling of medieval villages from central Italy where the owner formerly lived.  The use of wood gives a needed warmth to the space, and the double height central atrium space washes the interior with light to highlight these rich textures.  Read more about the project here.
