“The G family home in Sorengo, on the edge of Lugano in Ticino, is the category of villa that Palladio put forward as a contrast with the town house. The spaces are articulated according to the client’s precise requests, such as the fact that all the main living spaces on the ground floor, with a second floor devoted only to a games room, guest area and the solarium with a heated pool. As a house it is neither too large nor too small. There is room in it for all that is needed for each member of the family to live life autonomously.” – Scape
