- Giuseppe Passaro
Villa Leonida is at Ventoso, near Scandiano (Reggio Emilia). Built to a design by Giuseppe Passaro of GPaSTUDIO, the house takes its architectural concept from the surrounding landscape, avoiding visual barriers to allow full appreciation of the rural view.
Mystone Quarzite stone-effect porcelain stoneware, in Platinum colour, which accurately reproduces the aesthetics of natural stone, played a fundamental part in the project. On the ventilated walls, its diversity of sizes and multiple dimensions – 30x60, 60x60 and 60x120 cm – offer the basis for an installation pattern with a varied texture. The lower parts of the external walls, on the other hand, are in the large slimline slabs of Grande Metal Look, in Iron Dark colour, with its strong resemblance to natural iron. The alternation of the stone-look and the evocation of metal establishes a dialogue between architecture and landscape.
Inside, the bathroom is finished with the Grande Marble Look collection, in the elegant Imperiale colour, with veining and shade variations that contrast with the uniformity of the other surfaces.
