Villa a Majorca, a project by Nespoli and Novara with Friul Mosaic
Situated on an elevation in the hinterland of Majorca, open to the rural landscape and the Mediterranean on the horizon, the villa designed by architects Nespoli and Novara sublimates the mosaic as its protagonist. The project was realised by the Seregno-based architecture firm to make the villa a sought-after summer home. The villa is characterised by an aesthetic continuity between exterior and interior, in harmony with the typical colour palette of the region. The large and elegant patio of the house houses a small swimming pool, entirely covered in mosaic. This space, besides offering a perfect oasis of relaxation, represents the epicentre of the link between the private residence and the sea.
The recurring theme that can be recognised as a common thread within the villa is the coexistence and dialogue established between classic and contemporary. Crucial in this ongoing comparison is the use and choice that architects Nespoli and Novara made regarding the inclusion of mosaics from the company Friul Mosaic, which, thanks to its custom-made mosaic workshop, represents Italian excellence. For the swimming pool cladding, an ESAGONI Composition was created in the Nero Marquina and Carrara variant, one of Friul Mosaic’s contemporary proposals to re-propose the essential forms of classic and contemporary taste, with textures marked by clear colour transitions.
TRACCIA, a timeless decoration from Luisa Bocchietto’s TESSERE collection in the Bianco Thassos, Carrara and Nero Marquina versions, was chosen for the villa’s indoor living area. The result of an in-depth study of textiles and weaves in their construction and formal composition, TESSERE is the synthesis of mosaic art combined with the ancient art of textiles in a collection of handcrafted surfaces in every respect. Tessere, is, in fact, inspired by the world of historical textiles of the Biella-based company Piacenza1733, a leader in the processing of the highest quality yarns. The collection includes 7 patterns that find their origin in the wool mill’s archives and takes its name from the verb “to weave”, the act of interweaving the threads of the weft with those of the warp on the loom, and from the noun “tessera”, the basic element in the construction of the mosaic.
Again in the Bianco Thassos, Carrara and Nero Marquina variants, decorating the terraces of the villa in the east wing dedicated to guests is RETE, a Friul Mosaic line from the Contemporaneo catalogue, which comes to life from the meeting of geometries and originates a network of overlapping meshes.
