Underground Patio by Stefano Larotonda

Underground Patio is a minimal space located in Rovagnate, Italy, designed by Stefano Larotonda and Andrea Tregnago. The project is developed starting from the specific needs of the client, who needed a new entrance, a green area and the recovery of the basement in favor of a new space. The concept analyzes each specificity and summarizes them in a single essential gesture: digging a hole to define everything. Underground Patio involves the recovery of the basement and the subsequent creation of an outdoor space that is configured as an open-air room. This new environment allows the lighting of the underground area which becomes a large hall described by a series of internal partitions that define different spatial configurations. The project Underground Patio creates new living spaces that satisfy every need.
