Villa in Canton Ticino

Based on a project signed by architect Marco D’Azzo in collaboration with Misha Groh, the “Tanello house” villa has been object of an extensive renovation and expansion intervention. The estate, surrounded by a broad property, is located in Lugano and was initially presented as a holiday house with a typical Mediterranean architecture as intended by Northern European culture. The intervention aimed at bringing the building back to the original identity of the place where it belongs and at adapting it to the needs of the owners.

The entrance hall presents a circular plan where the chess floor and the boiserie, which lays along the perimeter, correspond to the circular opening of the upper floor balustrade, which draws light from the skylight opening made of onyx slats.

The circular boiserie at the entrance opens onto the generous kitchen area where the central traditional counter contrasts with the minimalism of Varenna kitchen’s products made of bleached oak wood.


In the library area the custom-made bookcases, realised in natural wengè wood, and the reinterpretation of the coffered ceiling are completed by the modern appearance of the Flexform upholstered items.

The façade towards the lake was customised with the inclusion of large fabric drapes that, just like external curtains, shield the villa from the sun as a reminiscence of the antique tents in historic villas. A long teak bench, made by our laboratories, defines and frames the porch
