Elogio del Grigio Home / Antonino Cardillo
Textual content description offered by the architects. This home, constructed on the outskirts of Castiglione delle Stiviere, on the slope of a moraine hill to the south of Garda, is impressed by the picture of the fog-bound lake. Its frontage seems within the type of a miniature palazzo, a symmetry of elongated openings, an entrance arch, and a hipped roof. Within the method of an historical pianura dwelling, this dominates the facet of the constructing going through the sundown.
Based on Hegel, consciousness is a discernment of greys. And this architectural design is a journey round a reality. The Soul of this home, due to this fact, is organized for listening to that which is unsaid. Within the inside, a lounge measuring 10.1×4.36×5.23 meters reunites distant echoes, extending the geography of a spot in instances seemingly far-off: the oblong cuspidate rooms of Marrakesh, window panes someplace between Venetian home windows and the marble hammams of Istanbul crossed by hidden waters.
The lounge of the home of greys is thus a mutable constellation of imaginaries. Its concept varieties inhabit a diaphanous area. Tonal gradients hyperlink and distinguish in equal measure, conferring that psychological character of the Wagnerian leitmotiv that weaves subtexts. So, via the acquired school of a dialog, the advantage of the gray reconstructs an structure of chromaticisms.
