How to transform an ancient orangery atop a hill in the green heart of Monferrato (Northern Italy) in a dream of green architecture for demanding people who - like French painter Henri Matisse - seek “luxury, calm and voluptuousness”?
The Dream&Charme Crystal Suite is the first Italian glass house inspired by the same green architectural masterpiece created by architect Philip Johnson in the USA. A structure made of glass and steel, designed and built according to the principles of ecological and social sustainability in a way that minimizes the impact on the territory and involves the local community in any tourist-related activities. Such a project couldn’t miss the contribution of Woodn Industries, which provided about 60 square meters of Greenwood Deck (Ebony colour, Loft finishing) for the decking of the outdoor solarium. Our partners Legno & Sole installed the profiles perpendicularly to the orientation of the suite on three sides of the building, to pave the terrace in front of the large bedroom and the two walkways that run along the sides of the orangery. Greenwood Deck provides the Suite with a natural carpet which is also resistant to weather agents, for guests seeking sun, relaxation and outdoor fitness.
The Crystal Suite is located at a 50-minute drive from downtown Milan: in just over 70 square meters covered and a big garden you’ll find a concentration of nature, sustainable technology and design.
The Crystal Suite will be presented to the public - with videos and photos – at Salone del Mobile 2016 in the Dream & Charme space in Via Montenapoleone 20, from April 12 to 16 (open 10.00 to 19.00). There, a Greenwood platform - of the same kind that’s been installed in Monferrato - will represent the elegance brought by Woodn Industries to the magnificent suite’s outdoor space.
