This villa by JM Architecture - Jacopo Mascheroni is a single-family home located in a quiet neighbourhood in Geneva, Switzerland. It consists of two floors above ground level and a basement. Its floors and walls and tiled with Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware tiles from the Basaltina Pantelleria, Pietre Etrusche Manciano, CementoCassero, and Cemento Rasato Bianco collections (60x120 cm) and the Basaltina Linosa collection (45x90 cm).
The two levels above ground feature thin black and white frames, while white sunken patios bring air and natural light to the basement. Each frame defines a specific space and is clad with porcelain stoneware tiles and aluminium panels on a ventilated façade. The design and depth of these frames help control heat during the summer, preventing the sun from entering the interiors, which are not equipped with air conditioning but only controlled mechanical ventilation.
The south façade features two stacked black frames 3.5 metres deep, outlining the kitchen and living area on the ground floor and the bedrooms’ terrace on the first floor. The white frames, on the other hand, outline the four single-bay rooms, improving their privacy.
