Holiday home in Tuscany
by Emanuela Frattini Magnusson and Pietro Todeschini

Ph. Simone Bossi

Emanuela Frattini Magnusson and Pietro Todeschini have designed a modernist-style residence discreetly leaning against the top of a hill.
Developed on a single level in the shape of a compact parallelepiped, the villa blends into the agricultural landscape of the lower Tuscan Maremma, enjoying the privilege of isolation and immersion in nature. The graphic nature of the interiors is enhanced by floor patterns, which are inspired by the techniques of Venetian flooring and the great interpretation offered by Carlo Scarpa, and implemented through the use of terracotta tiles.

This project has been longlisted in the rural house category of Dezeen Awards 2021.

Architect: Emanuela Frattini Magnusson and Pietro Todeschini
