VILLADOMUS
SESTRI LEVANTE, ITALY the villa

Carlo Daneri (1900 – 1972) scholar first and later associate to Le Courbusier’s Studio drafted a revolutionary (and rationally perfect) project for a Villa in Sestri Levante, overlooking the Sea.

 

Built on a peninsula overlooking a dramatic Seacliff, Villa Domus is surrounded by the sea with and angle of 270 degrees.

The Villa’s Park (20 ha), designed by the architect himself, is one of the most astonishing examples of “macchia mediterranea” with century old trees.

Woods, a garden, a swimming pool, a patio, soccer field, 4 terraces overlooking the sea, a second detached guest mansion as well as a private beach, accessible by land only from the villa, make this property unique on the Italian Riviera.

 

Huge glass walls, which can be lifted via an original electrical system, disappear in the house walls opening up the living rooms and the dining room to the sea. A unique feature at the time.

Concrete framed glass blocks (usually an industrial feature) quite unusual for a villa, blended with ancient roman remains and statues dating from the early 1900 let its guests enjoy an unparalleled experience.

The villa was published on a number of prestigious Architectural revues first in Casabella in 1940, subsequently in Domus (1941) and Abitare (1986).

Villa Domus enjoys the highest level of privacy. Its huge park and the Villa are set on a peninsula and are fully secluded from the nearby village.

 

Within 15 km lies Portofino and within 25 km the 5 terre.

Within an hour by car you can reach Genua, Pisa, Lucca and the Serravalle Outl
