Inclined Plane

A stone catwalk to reconcile the house with its garden.

The project

An articulated system of steps intrudes, rigid and cumbersome, between a pretty villa in the foothills and its large, multilevel garden.

Following the owner’s wish to make the access suitable also for people with reduced mobility, Stilò places a stone ribbon on the green lawn, designed to finally reconcile the house with its garden.

Just sliding a little the entrance gate along the plot border and magically all levels (basement, upper terrace, staircase to the main floor) are connected, and the former-ignored garden become the scenic design of a stony catwalk towards the house.

Stone planters with rigorous lines exalt the bursting vitality of plants and flowers competently chosen by Neò‘s landscape designers.
