It's called an apartment for a writer. Perhaps an apartment for an observer. For someone who reflects on their surrounds. Holds a mirror to the world and records, writes. Or perhaps is vain? Cares about looks and style. No that would be more likely if the mirror lined the desk space. Either way I'm smitten by this clever storage by Auckland based Cheshire Architects.
Italian design firm zanon architetti associati have breathed new life into this old Treviso country villa. The ground floor as become one large room while glass windows on the box like extension reflect the garden blurring the edges between inside and out. Vines grow up over the terracotta hued house and corten steel weathers to match the render. New and renewal, modern and traditional.
