Cassia Antica by JM Architecture.

Remodelling project of a 1960s villa, located in a residential complex along the historic consular roman road which neighbours with the Veio natural park, at the north end of the italian capital. The villa, organized on three levels, has been redesigned in order to accommodate very different functions on every level. The basement level has been dedicated to play and relax areas. This floor is hosting a large spa entirely cladded in teak wood, with a 6 x 2.5 meter counter current lap pool with hydro jets on the other end. On the other side of a clear glass wall there’s a play room. Both areas are read a a large single space due to the glass transparent wall. A sunken patio is bringing natural light to this level and it creates a private outdoor area protected from any sight of the neighbouring villas. The ground level, which is hosting all the daytime functions, is organized on two separated zones, on the left and right side of the entrance catwalk. On the left side are located the kitchen, family room and dining area, while on the right side are located the study room and the living area. Even the 1.800 square meter outdoors are strongly characterized by the use of wood. All decks are paved with Ipe wood. Other materials are gravel inserts, bamboo plants and grass.┬áCassia Antica was designed by JM Architecture
