Playing with Lines: new work by Luigi Rosselli

With an emphasis on both horizontal + vertical lines 
and the patterns made therein,
this new house by Luigi Rosselli 
carries an element of Streamlined Modernism about it.

The corrugated concrete facade 
is subtly referenced internally 
by the arresting woven cane + wire balustrade to the main staircase.
And the curved internal wall,
seen here to the right, 
references the curvaceous front facade.
While the rear facade is given over to full height window walls,
admitting much loved natural light,
and a much more rectilinear form.
Almost a modern interpretation, 
in contemporary natural materials,
of the Streamline Moderne of the early 20th century.

    What a great new layout and name (I've recently just returned to blogging). And great architectural inspirations, as always. 

  2. Hello and welcome back! Thank you - what lovely things to say. This house is an architectural treasure, I think. V xx

  3. Hi miss virginia

    sorry haven't been around for a while - lots of hospital with my dad.
    but wanted to check in here with you (one of my fave bloggers :)

    I like this mans lines - very talented, but I do love it more on the internal than the external - but do you know what, I'd live there - very easily :)

    Have a wonderful day,

    This home is amazing but the rear of the building falls a bit flat though, dont you think?  The inside however, certainly makes up it!
