A well as a patio on Interni

Saturday, September 23rd, 2006

Interni magazine’s issue of September 2006 features an article about the private house of Catherine Vautrin and Tiziano Vudafieri in Milan. Designed by Tiziano Vudafieri, the house is articulated around a small, shady, green patio that was conceived in collaboration with Lorenzo Bini from Studiometrico and Gianluca Lugli. We publish here few images of the house, the garden (which we previously named ‘A well as a patio’) and the courtyard.

zhou garden

zhou-entrance

studiometrico has presented last week a first proposal for a private garden in shanghai, china. the project is an intervention on a ‘problematic’ exhisting environment: a house already exists and a garden has been already layed out by unknown designers, but since the character of both is not considered satisfying by the owner, vudafieri partners and studiometrico have been called up to collaborate (once again) to produce new concepts for the interior and the outdoor spaces. the proposal has been well received and, according to the scheduled timeline, works should be completed by next chinese new year!
