House in a Pine Wood
- Anke Nunheim
The architectural office ‘Sundaymorning’ by italian architects Fabio Candido and Massimo Fiorido Associati works on architectural, urban and graphic design, covering multiple levels of discipline. Their new project was created by the occasion of renovating a poorly built summer residence from the mid-sixties, surrounded by pine wood and dunes. The limited range of materials – travertine marble cladding, plaster, teak wood – gives continuity to the horizontal planes inside and outside and helps to integrate the building into the landscape. Providing a comfortable refuge from the outside world, but also paying respect to the landscape, in which buildings with strong character are connected by paths that follow the free conformation of the landscape. Color and shape harmonises beautifully with the surrounding landscape, forming a perfect relationship and balance between the internal and external space. Finished with lovely details, like the staircase, which can also be used as a shelf.
