The modern architectural style of Villetta San Giovanni reflects the human necessity of living with all the comforts of the city. It is located in the heart of the Valle dei Castelli di Jesi, in Rosora, in a small village overlooking Monte Murano and the Parco della Gola della Rossa.
The design puts the relationship between external and internal as the most important aspect of the building, staying faithful to its genius loci.
The relationship between internal and external spaces is made extremely subtle by the separation of the inside areas into two different levels, and the panoramic linking staircases that run along one side to the main entrance. This gives a sense of closeness to the three residences, each space seeming more intimate.
The width of the spaces and varying levels within the house, along with the geometric simplicity of the design, create a secluded atmosphere. Solitary alcoves suggest different routes through the house, varying perspectives and changing the domestic backdrop.
The apartments are three light and comfortable residences appropriate for families or to open for tourists with the possibility of having an ideally placed reception in one of the three apartments which are linked with the other two.
The first ground floor apartment measures 47.35 sqm and comprises of an entrance with a small living room, a kitchen, a room, bathroom and utility room. An adjoining staircase leads to the cellar, where you find the taverna (underground restaurant) of around 56 sqm, and the garage of around 30sqm. The taverna is completely furnished and equipped with a kitchen and bathroom.
The second apartment is situated on the ground floor, unfurnished, measuring around 44 sqm and comprising of a kitchen, living room, a bedroom, and an underground taverna of around 44sqm fully equipped with WC, a garage of around 30sqm. The ‘taverna’ is complete with a jacuzzi.
The apartment on the first floor measures around 83 sqm and comprises of a large living room with balconies along the side and a panoramic terrace. In the sleeping area there are two bedrooms, bathroom and utility room.
Each apartment has its own sense of privacy, as well as the terrace, allowing you to enjoy the view opening out to the east.
The stairs, which run from the ground to the top floor, connect the three apartments. They are architecturally original, giving a separate chromatic effect to each of the residences.
The outside, which would be perfect for a veranda, is a place in which space is used very efficiently. There are both open and covered places, perfect for having lunch, and relaxing. The atmosphere of conviviality here is reminiscent of the days when country folk would have dinner together at long tables in the farmyard to celebrate feast days.
The windows are made to keep out noise, letting in the colours of the meadows and fields, and low winter sunbeams that warm up the rooms. Or, when the sun rises high in the sky you can draw the shutters, maintaining a pleasant temperature in the shade.
