DISSOLVING THE BOUNDARIES BETWEEN THE OLD TOWN AND THE SEA - AN INTERPRETATION OF TRADITIONAL ELEMENTS
Historically seen, the Italian island of Grado is also known as the "Mother of Venice" and was founded in the second century BC. The idea for this project was to create a combination of traditional elements of the Triveneto area combined with details of the old town of Grado. The original structure dates back to the early 1900's and housed a single-family home and a carpenter since then.
By proposing new floor plans with fabulous views of the Adriatic Sea, greened courtyards and a spacious roof terrace as a modern form of the typical Venetian altana, our primary design intention was to generate positive tension between earth and water.
