Una piscina nel paesaggio

The use of an earthy shade for the ceramic coverings extends from the paving of the courtyard to the inside of the swimming pool, establishing a single material shade for different levels. A new interpretation of the lessons taught by the landscape architect Luis Barragan defines the ochre shade of the perimeter walls that form a closed architectural space reminiscent of the courtyards of buildings in Catania. The outline of the walls enhances the view of the tops of the surrounding trees, which partly shield the courtyard and the pool from the buildings around it.
