villa cornaro

Via Roma Piombino Dese, Italia

villa palladio

eye lo descubrió en enero de 2013

The Villa Cornaro stands in Piombino Dese, a village in the countryside, run through by the state road n. 307 “del Santo”, which from Padua leads up towards Castelfranco, about thirty kilometres from Vicenza.
This piece of architecture marks a quality leap of Palladio’s clients; he had already worked for a Venetian family (Villa Pisani in Lonigo), though not as prestigious, nor as wealthy. However, to end his works it will take two more interventions, in 1559 and in 1588 (this last one by Vincenzo Scamozzi, Palladio’s spiritual heir).
At the centre of the project there is a building which one could spontaneously define a “country house” rather than a villa. The monumental aspect of the villa reminds of an urban residence, and the analogies with the Palazzo Chiericati, which is being built during the same period in Vicenza, are remarkable.
The façade displays the same pronaos of a double order (not uncommon in Venetian Gothic style), and the building is purposely isolated from the service buildings. The inner room disposition underlines the celebration aspect of the building, with a great hall with four free standings columns and adorned with statues.
The function of the ground floor is to welcome guests and clients, while the piano nobile, with elegant staircases leading up to it, is reserved for the family. For stylistic comparison see the almost contemporaneous Villa Pisani in Montagnana and two works erected little earlier: Palazzo Chiericati in Vicenza and Villa Chiericati in Grumolo delle Abbadesse.

villa badoer

Via Tasso 1 Fratta Polesine, Italia

villa de palladio

eye lo descubrió en enero de 2013

The Villa Badoer is in the centre of Fratta Polesine, not far from the state road n. 434 “Transpolesana” which from Verona runs down towards Legnago and Rovigo, about 15 kilometres from the tollbooth along the motorway A13 Padua-Bologna (for a total of 90 km from Vicenza).
Palladio is commissioned the project by the Venetian nobleman Francesco Badoer as a coronation of the draining work in this part of the plain. The building rises on the site of a Medieval castle and inherits the celebration function of the dominating family: the villa is probably built upon the existing footing and rises majestically at the centre of the monumental frame made by the very elegant semicircular farming buildings, which hide the other service buildings.
The spectacular effect is underlined by the waters of the canal, which at the time was navigable up to Venice and Ferrara, and which separates the main square of the village from the villa. The façade has a forepart like a temple, with a Ionic colonnade and a triangular tympanum, preceded by a spectacular staircase with more slopes: on the front they lead down towards the courtyard, on the sides, they connect the building with the service buildings.
An interesting feature is the contrast between the Ionic order applied in the main building and the Tuscan order of the other buildings. On the inside, the rooms are arranged according to Palladio’s usual schemes, with the basement for service rooms, the piano nobile for the master’s rooms, and the barn.
A characteristic element is the open hall like in the Venetian palaces. The frescoes by Giallo Fiorentino from the same period a remarkable, with allegorical figures, sometimes with an obscure meaning. The particular thing about the Villa Badoer is certainly the curvilinear barchesse (service build- ings) which Palladio includes in more designs, but which are actually built only in Fratta. The scheme is inspired by Roman architecture – for example the Forum of Augustus – and is more symbolic than practical, and the image is that of a hearty welcome with open arms. For stylistic comparison see the nearby Villa dei Vescovi in Luvigliano by Falconetto. The villa is now owned by the Province of Rovigo, and they are working to turn the rooms inside the two service buildings into an important archaeological museum.

villa pisani bonetti

Via Borgo Eniano 1 - Montagnana - (Padova) Montagnana, Italia

villa de paladio

eye lo descubrió en enero de 2013

The Villa Pisani lies in the countryside of the Medieval village Montagnana, not far from the border between the provinces of Verona (50 km), Vicenza (40 km) and Padua (45 km). The client is the powerful Venetian nobleman Francesco Pisani, also known as patron of artists like Veronese.
Taking into account the client’s origin and culture, Palladio conceives a villa which is a little different, mainly because it is without service buildings, and because it is extraordinarily monumental.
The architect conceives the “country house” in the same way the Villa Cornaro in Piombino Dese for a nobleman of equal rank was conceived.
The building in Montagnana is almost cubic and its façade is embellished by a double loggia crowned by a tympanum, as first seen at the Palazzo Chiericati in Vicenza a few years before. On the ground floor there are the rooms for receiving guests and do business, on the upper floor we find the master’s rooms.
They are linked through beautiful oval spiral staircases. The most important and spectacular room is the hall with half-columns on the ground floor, adorned with statues representing the Four Seasons by Alessandro Vittoria.
For stylistic comparison see the almost contemporaneous Villa Cornaro in Montagnana and two buildings erected little earlier: Palazzo Chiericati in Vicenza and Villa Chiericati in Grumolo delle Abbadesse

villa pisani bonetti

Via Risaie 1, Bagnolo, Italia

villa de palladio

eye lo descubrió en enero de 2013

On the state road towards Cologna Veneta we ar- rive to the village district Bagnolo, where one of Andrea Palladio’s most important works stands, the Villa Pisani of 1542.
“The Building stands in Bagnolo, a place two miles away from Lonigo Castello del Vicentino. It belongs to the Magnificent Lords the Pisani Brothers Earls Vittore, Marco and Daniele.” (from “The Second Book of Architecture” by A. Palladio)
Villa Pisani stands at thirty kilometres from vicenza. It is an extraordinary area for farming, with plants that are typical for the plain, but also to the vines of the nearby Colli Berici. At Palladio’s time, the village Bagnolo was in the middle of a huge area of rice fields, a very important economic resource. Thus, it is no surprise that the family who run these fields was the Pisani family, one of Venice’s most powerful clans, who owned a sumptuous palace in Lonige, and who had a suburban villa built, the famous Rocca.
This job is a quality leap for Palladio, as regards his clients: from the Vicenza noblemen with their wavering fortunes to the great families of the Serenissima, who can count on culture and wealth of a very different degree. The Villa Pisani is a turning point in the concept of a Palladian villa.
The architect is 38 years old and has just come back from his crucial education journey to Rome in 1541, a fact that can be noticed immediately: at the centre of the project remains, of course, the residence, which is enhanced with a basement, like an ancient temple, while the service buildings, who were formerly not considered from a monumental point of view, form a suitable crown. Thus, the design considers the dwelling place just as important as the production area, conferring architecture the conception of business mixed with pleasure, an idea which Renaissance philosophers appreciated. On the inside we find remarkable paintings inspired by Ovid’s Metamorphoses. For stylistic comparison, see the villas Palladio designs during the same year: Palazzo Thiene, Villa Caldogno, Villa Gazzotti, Villa Thiene and Villa Valmarana. The villa is presently used for private purposes.

finn juhl house

Vilvordevej 110 Charlottenlund, Dinamarca

guardado por una persona

eye lo descubrió en octubre de 2012

Finn Juhl’s own house is a textbook example of his project as an architect and as a furniture designer. The house at Kratvænget 15 in Charlottenlund, north of Copenhagen was built in 1942. It is situated in rural surroundings on a 1700 m² site adjoining the park at Ordrupgaard. The house is composed of two blocks standing at right-angles to each other. In one block is a large living room and a small study, while the second block houses the kitchen, dining room, bedrooms and bathroom. The two blocks are joined by an entrance hall which opens to the garden. The house is an early example of open-plan, with a characteristic view through its rooms. Although each room has its own clear function, it is always possible to look from one room to the next as you walk through the house and there is always a view of the garden. The ceilings are painted in pale light yellow and when they reflect the light from outside, they resemble the roof of a tent with light shining through. The house is brick-built and the façade is plastered in a grey-white shade which offers it a soft, matt effect. Therefore the house appears light against the contrasting dark woodland backdrop. Finn Juhl ‘thought’ in rooms, i.e. he thought from the inside to the outside. The facades were secondary and were to express the ideas behind the floor plan. Furthermore there had to be a balance between walls and windows. Finn Juhl had an excellent sense of how to integrate rooms with each other and how the light should work. The interaction between the rooms in the house and its outside surroundings were also important to the architect. The garden was designed by the landscape architect Troels Erstad.

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

From 1941 to 1942 furniture designer Finn Juhl designed and furnished his own house next door to Ordrupgaard. The house is one of the first functionalistic one-family houses in Denmark. Here Finn Juhl lived until his death in 1989. Finn Juhl’s widow Hanne Wilhelm Hansen left the house and its interior unchanged. On 3 April 2008 the house opened as a separate, additional part of Ordrupgaard Art Museum, thanks to a private donation from Birgit Lyngbye Pedersen.
