Private Residence Porto San Giorgio

On a parallel street of the waterfront in Porto San Giorgio, a seaside resort in the Marche region of Italy, a modern building interrupts the string of Art Nouveau villas that characterize this part of town. On the second floor, arch. Giorgia Dennerlein intervenes radically, choosing to give a unique, minimalist face to the Sangiorgese residence intended for the holiday period.

The 160 square meters are distributed so that light – including artificial light from Vibia and Zava – designs the interiors, which are elegant and linear. A bold layout where the resin floor creates an effect of continuity between the sleeping area, the four bathrooms, the kitchen and the large living, the central soul of the apartment.

Dennerlein shapes a space with a masculine, technologically advanced character that does not forget its connection to the sea at a short distance: the figure of a diver returns both in the 1950s wallpaper and in the sculptures scattered in every corner of the house. So it is with the four bedrooms, where the fibrous texture chosen for the wall coverings, which embrace Living Divani beds and Pianca nightstands, equally hints at an exotic, seaside setting.

Natural essence marks the whole project: from the linen fabrics to the maple seating of the large Potocco table with its crossed colonial legs and white marble top, to the rope-colored Living Divani sofas, for a final result of great freshness and fluidity. The cabinet behind the table is by Minotti Italia.

A sea of light and lightness

The soft colors of sand find their form in the sought-after furnishings, including Senday’s limited-edition bookcase-sculpture designed by architect Toyo Hito.
The transparency of the shelves hints at water, while the solid alder and walnut wood turnings warm the room, giving it exclusivity.

Un mare di luce e di leggerezza

A precious minimalism, which plays on juxtapositions and uses elements to separate spaces. Senday is the filter between the living room and the hallway, which shows other strengths: behind the louvered sliding doors is the kitchen made strictly to measure. As are the cabinets. Horizontal aluminum slats painted black let the light filter through, allowing a glimpse of the large island/ break area covered in wood.

A hole in the wall, cut in the manner of a cornice above the Desalto console table, allows the entrance to be presided over from this part of the house as well. The connection between the various rooms suggests the possibility of making them intimate places or open spaces for conviviality and socializing. The choice to use ADL doors, which are thin and flush with the wall, is proof of this.

The feeling is that of entering a temple of relaxation, enhanced by the lightness of the pantone and the symmetry of the spaces, including the Karol and Flaminia bathrooms, where arch. Dennerlein plays with cement resins and continuous color changes, as well as recalling the rope and its natural fiber, the true identity element of the residence.

The exteriors are two terraces furnished with MDF Italia tables and Dedon and Extremis armchairs: islands in the island of well-being, flooded with light and enriched with greenery to integrate them with the surrounding nature.
