Liberty Garda: Where Garda’s Timeless Elegance Meets Contemporary Flair
In the picturesque setting of Garda, Italy, Liberty Garda stands as a testament to architectural resilience and innovation. Designed by the acclaimed PadiglioneB Architettura Integrata and redesigned in 2023, the house perfectly marries historic charm with modern sensibilities.
Drawing inspiration from traditional “Terrazzo alla Veneziana” floors and the warmth of Vicenza stone, the abode is a harmonious blend of the past and present.
About Liberty Garda
At first glance, Liberty Garda exemplifies thoughtful restoration. Over the years, numerous modifications altered its function and layout. However, the vision prevailed.
Revisiting Original Intent
Thanks to visionary clients, we soon brought the house closer to its original purpose. Consequently, we replaced reinforced concrete floors with more fitting wooden elements.
Modern Interiors with a Nod to the Past
Firstly, we integrated custom furniture based on our designs. Following this, the bathrooms, a blend of past architecture and modern materials, stand out prominently. Additionally, we crafted each bathroom piece in natural-touch wood, ensuring an authentic, lively feel.
Staircase: A Dance of History and Modernity
After restoring the ancient marble staircase, we then chose to extend it with a lightweight micro-perforated metal element. With this in mind, we aimed to flood the stairwell with light. This not only celebrates the historic staircase but also ensures the new one complements without overshadowing.
Subsequently, Liberty Garda pays homage to historic finishes. The floor, styled as “Terrazzo alla Veneziana”, dynamically adapts to the house’s unique undulations, embracing its architecture.
On the exterior, the fiery Vicenza stone shines. Its warm color not only limits reflection but also makes the stone vibrantly stand out.
Lastly, every stone element underwent meticulous manual treatment, preserving its historic patina. This meticulous approach promises graceful aging in the years to come.
