This is a micro routine maintenance's intervention, the renovation of a bathroom inside a beautiful apartment marked by a Tiffany strip, located in Porto Ercole, Monte Argentario.
The dear places by the female client, a lover of the coasts of this mountain full of enchanting landscapes and baths, inspired the project.
"Bathing among the rocks but at home, finding a piece of coast in one of the most intimate spaces of a woman".
The stoneware chosen recalls the magmatic coasts of Monte Argentario's coves and its surroundings: Le Cannelle, Mar Morto and Bagno delle Donne.
The sky-blue grainy plaster, a typical technique for facades, emphasizes the material, recalling those backdrops bathed in crystalline waters.
The white equipped wall, composed of a top in Corian and a marine plywood wall unit, stands out among the rocks, like the shell on which Venus landed in Cyprus.
