Slabs of sintered stone recall the Mediterranean landscape

A contemporary villa designed by Mario Mazzer Architects looks out over the breathtaking landscape of the Costa Smeralda without ignoring the local architectural heritage.

The paradisiacal landscape of Gallura, which is a renowned area in the north of Sardinia, is one of the most delicate and challenging contexts for architects, who must be able to act with sensitivity in the design and choice of materials. Villa Emma by Mario Mazzer Architects in Porto Rotondo interprets in a contemporary key the "stuzzu", a type of building traditionally inhabited by shepherds and farmers, with a rectangular shape and sloping roof, but without renouncing to a markedly contemporary architectural language.

Among the materials selected are the large slabs of sintered stone Lapitec, which recall the Mediterranean atmosphere, calm and bright, of the Costa Smeralda. The large surfaces are used to clad floors, external walls, stairs, facades and swimming pool, creating warm and familiar environments.  The main properties of the product are its unalterability to atmospheric agents and salt, which allows the indistinct use between inside and outside, and the ease of processing, which allows you to work with precision to various details such as the bulls on the edge of the pool and the steps backlit by LEDs on the inside staircase.
