Bioarchitecture

The restoration of the Country House Casco dell’Acqua has followed the principles of Bio-architecture, based on an accurate study of the building and the elements of its location,   “Topos”,  its  “attachment to the land”, the exposition according to the four cardinal points (all beds except one have  headboards towards north and are never situated near external walls, studying convective methods of each room). Winds, air flows and sunlight suggest the better destination for each room. The loggia on the upper floor is the only element added which has allowed to solve out the gap between the main volumes representing two different building times (years 1775 and 1934). The final result is a “clever game of volumes under the sunlight”. Each apartment has a particular and unique relationship with the outside: each apartment is named after a cadastral toponym of the aspects . There are no paintings in the apartments: this was done with the aim of highlighting the evocative views from the windows which feature the interiors just like paintings.

“Skyline” all around: the hills of Montefalco, Trevi and the mountain of Sassovivo can be found in nearby museums which expose the works of art by great  Renaissance Masters, (Raffaello, Piero Della Francesca, Pinturicchio, etc.).

The furniture of the interiors and exteriors have been all designed for this country house, with a simple, refined and minimalist style, highlighting the dimensional relationships among the various elements which compose the pieces of furniture. They are connected by measures which are multiples and submultiples of the “magic” number 3. The project has been accurate, considering every detail, like handles and knobs.

The simple shapes underline the precious materials used, like the essence of oak naturally treated and finished with water, in order to avoid any contamination.

There is a technologic solar thermal control unit for temperature, supplying unlimited quantity of hot water in the good season.  Home automation runs and reasons all the energy necessary for the place, allowing an important energy saving. All lights are low consumption. Outdoor LEDS have a color temperature of 5500 K° (Kelvin degrees), the same temperature of the moon.

The swimming-pool has salty water.  The choice of materials has been done with particular attention to the reuse and salvage of objects and materials:

–          floors of handmade clay, the clay has been extracted from local soil (Bevagna), treated with beeswax.

–          plasters with base of lime, respecting the old frame work made of stones and bricks, easy to recognize because they are warm and silky by touch;

–          paintwork with base of siloxanes, highly transpiring, has used materials  issued from gold manufacturing (gold powder), giving all walls bright nuances, very particular and  evocative tones, which changes according to the time of the day (name of the product: “Encanto ”  Oikos from Rimini);

–           Bathrooms tiles and floors are  made of special “granite stoneware”, with a natural element as a base: marble, carbon neutral.

–          The natural wood of the beams and plankings of the floors, as well as the pieces of furniture, are being treated with water products.

All this has just one aim: your well-being, as soon as you enter our place. Come and see!
