Casa Nili, Zupelli transforms a house in Brescia


Immersed in the province of Brescia, Casa Nili is the name of the project by Zupelli Design Architettura studio which concerns the renovation of some areas of the existing house, according to the new needs of the client.

The intervention includes the reorganization of the ground floor of the main building to create a living space and kitchen completely overlooking the courtyard; moreover, a new volume with decidedly more contemporary features has been annexed to the existing building, defining a new portico adjacent to the living area.

The design of the outdoor space was dedicated to the large space that the house already had and the pre-existence of the barn, and the space was organized in a sequence of five spaces arranged for a total length of about 22 meters: a “wet” area covered in Teak and bordered by a septum from which the shower water is supplied; a 12 m long swimming pool, with a “spillway” edge, equipped with a large beach flush with water that gradually enters the main pool; an outdoor sunbathing area, also in Teak and finally a decorative flowerbed, which closes the design composition, in which an olive tree plant has been placed.

The house becomes new, inside and outside.
