Residence Santa Caterina
Residence Santa Caterina designed by Studio Apostoli is being implemented in Verona – an architectural housing design that has become an important part of the environment. The innovative design style of the project has been informed by its location. The Studio aimed to create a space pleasant for residents to walk through. Houses and their environment should always create a unique harmonious landscape.
The architecture of the complex is composed of vertical elements, due to which the amount of living space gains volume and conceals the ground floor. For this project, Studio Apostoli employed rigorous and simple elements such as stained glass windows that visually relieve the volume. In total, three types of coatings (stucco, stone, and green stratified laminate) are utilized within the project. The walls are clad with one material inside and outside to give the complex a unique, harmonious style. Creating houses that integrate well within the milieu of a place offers an atmosphere of community. The home and its surroundings unify through lighting, namely, the uniformity of installed lamps. Studio Apostoli is also involved in lighting the project and designing the park and lawns of the complex. It includes “hanging” gardens and decorative hedges. Along the stone walkways, native plants will feature.
The complex will be a gated community offering. The internal zones will be delineated by lawns and not fences. A live-in groundskeeper/gardener will take care of all the gardens within the complex. The project also utilizes the best energy-saving technologies (solar panels and power plants) and the latest modern materials. All this creates a unique atmosphere without excessive luxury. The project includes 56 buildings of three types: 75, 150, or 225 square meters (about 8,000 square meters total). Each house has a special and unique style that is consistent with the general design of the residential complex.
Residence Santa Caterina is situated in a green area with well-considered footpaths. It is located near the city center (seven minutes by car). Total area – 35000 sq.m.
The residential area will make up 21,000 square meters, while the allocated parking will occupy 10,000 square meters. The parking capacity will include 80 car spaces. The building area is divided into 8 blocks.
