L.A. Modern is a residential project completed by Carlo Donati Studio.
It is located in Lodi, Italy, and has a bright and clear interior.
L.A. Modern by Carlo Donati Studio:
“LA modern is a 500 sq meters (5,382 sq feet) single family villa in the Italian country located in a wide lot with a garden.
The architectural language reminds of the lines and the atmosphere of the modernist Palm Springs’ villas but it reinterpretates them using contemporary materials. The kitchen is a low volume with a long flat roof facing the pool and crossed by a tall cork tree. The façades on the main street have no windows, instead the ones facing to the courtyard are designed with huge sliding windows opening to the garden and the pool.
The chromatic and materic palette is the guideline of the project. The surface finishing of the facades are white stucco, corten steel and wooden vertical slats. Circular holes in the façade enlight the walkway to the spa area. At night, the light coming out from the holes reflects in to the pool.”
