Le Marche, Italy
Markus Wespi & Jérôme de Meuron
In the heart of Le Marche, Italy, just an hour from the Adriatic coast, is an old 19th century farm that has been restored with tender loving care. It is the GANDIABLASCO’s Contract project in this splendid region of Italy, just a few kilometres from the medieval city of Treia.
From tradition to modernity. The rural architecture of this stone building is protected by the Cultural and Historic Heritage of Italy. Swiss architects Markus Wespi and Jérôme de Meuron have transformed the inside of CASA OLIVI with designer furniture in natural colours and white walls that reflect the scant natural light that enters through the nineteenth-century windows. The villa is a mix of tradition, modernity and contemporary design, with pieces by Vitra, Cassina, José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales and Philippe Stark, among others.
Outdoor spaces include an infinity pool with uninterrupted views over the deep valley and surrounding hills, with the blue Adriatic Sea on the horizon. Furnished with the 356 collection by José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales and Pablo Gironés, designer chairs and designer tables make this a superb spot for an aperitif under the ancient olive tree. The 356 designer chaise longues create idyllic surroundings for relaxing by the pool, surrounded by olives and aromatic plants. Pieces that dialogue, elegantly, with the architecture and exquisite interior design CASA OLIVI.
