Villa Sardinia, Italy

The sculptural Villa Sardinia is located on the promontory of Abbiadori, overlooking the magnificent Cala Volpe, in one of the most beautiful panoramas of Sardinia. This striking work, designed by Fabio Mazzeo, stands out for its visionary character and the way it weaves a set of continuous references to emphasize the links between the building and its natural environment. It’s architecture with tailor’s precision: here, design is played out at all scales, down to the smallest detail, to create a unique style.

Art, design and craftsmanship intertwine in a delicate balance. A harmonious project unfolds under the careful supervision of Fabio Mazzeo, artistic director of Exclusiva, now part of Fabio Mazzeo Architects.

Mazzeo describes:
“Our way of designing and building is deeply rooted in an ideal of Italian beauty that is never static, but which translates each time into a unique style that arises from the client’s desires. We achieve this goal by engaging cross-functional talents and skills, including artists, artisans, decorators, painters and all the creatives and designers of Fabio Mazzeo’s team, in a holistic and organic vision of architecture.

The unifying theme of the design is travertine, which completely covers the villa and continues inside. A fine marble palette that alternates between Navona, walnut, sandblasted, bush-hammered and polished travertine finishes, bringing movement and light to the structure along with full-height windows that capture ever-changing views. The flowing volumes of the house seem to have been sculpted by the wind, following the contours of the land in a fascinating interaction with the natural setting. The 1,300 m² building is spread over three levels, in harmonious symbiosis with the 5,000 m² of terraced garden and the panoramic infinity pool.

Designed as a dynamic polyhedron, the villa evokes new emotions from all sides. The west facade, visible from afar and much more symmetrical and regular than the others, offers the classic and imposing image of a fortress silhouetted against the horizon. Its austerity is softened by the presence of centuries-old olive trees and the organic development of the architecture. The south façade, almost completely transparent, opens onto the view of the Pevero and the islands facing it, while the large windows on the east façade act as a light filter between the interior and the garden.

To the north, the main entrance immediately catches the eye. The molded marble frame with an asymmetrical embrasure converges towards the portal which, like a textural painting in polished and sandblasted steel, evokes a panorama of sails. From here, the interiors unfold, rich in theatrical detail like the backdrop that surrounds the home theater room: hand plastered panels with gold and silver leaf decorations echo the horizon of Cala Volpe, part of the evocation of the natural elements that characterize the interior of the house. .

Bleached oak paneling and reflective surfaces lend light and charm to the entire second floor, designed as one vast open space where each individual space blends seamlessly into the next, from the entryway to the living room and dining room. to eat. In the guest area, visitors are welcomed and impressed by the wine cellar: an oak-panelled marvel dedicated to tasting.

Throughout the villa there are many pieces of furniture designed specifically for this project by the Fabio Mazzeo team, and made by the best Italian craftsmen. These unique pieces rub shoulders with jewels of contemporary design, such as the Living Divani seats in the lounge area. The lighting design creates striking scenes, with sumptuous and delicate chandeliers by Vistosi, jeweled chandeliers by Lolli and Memmoli, ultra-modern wall sconces by Catellani & Smith and artistic wall sconces by Visionnaire.

Each object is chosen with extreme care, from the pair of sinuous metal vases by De Castelli, which create chiaroscuro effects in the hall, to the elegant and precious Porada mirrors in the sleeping area, where bedside tables, chairs and chests of drawers by Opera Contemporary is combined with beds by Twils, fabrics by Rubelli and armchairs by Fendi Casa. The master bedroom has two crystalline marble bathrooms with marine-toned mosaic decorations by SICIS and elegant washbasins by Villeroy & Boch. These striking pieces also appear in the guest bathrooms, along with the evocative botanically inspired mosaics, also from SICIS.

The surrounding landscape permeates the design, from the living rooms to the guest and master bedrooms and the kitchen. The effect is almost overwhelming, providing ever-changing views where light and greenery become part of the architecture. This intense dialogue with nature reaches its climax in the relaxation areas of the garden and the swimming pool, and in the roof terrace with its evocative planks that stretch towards the Mediterranean.
