A modern expression of luxury, this spectacular concrete and glass residence located in the picturesque Obermais neighbourhood in Merano, Italy is a tour de force of contemporary architecture and engineering. Designed to create a seamless transition between sublime interior spaces and a resort-like exterior, the entire home resonates with a unity of purpose.
The interior melts together with the outside space as if the terrain flows through the building and finds its renewal in the pool and meadow area. Because of a refined external design and the arrangement of the pool, lawn, and garden, the entire residence becomes a tranquil sanctuary where pure luxury prevails.
The concept of exclusive luxury appointments extends to the subterranean garage, where you will find a compact underground car elevator with a scissor lift that allows the grounds of the residence to remain flat and uninterrupted. Because of engineering and technology considerations, the building is conceived as a compact volume with one underground and two upper floors, built with open concrete construction and extensive glass-façade elements that provide a narrative of transparency to the solid surfaces of the residence.
