14th Century Modern

29Oct12

You probably look at this dining space and think another “rustic meets modern” interior and you would be right. What you probably wouldn’t guess is that this dining room is part of a restored 14th century building located in the small Civita di Bagnoregio, a village that is more than 600 years old near Umbria, Italy. Patrizio Fradiani of Studio F Design oversaw the project to turn this into a vacation rental spot, Domus Civita, that features original tile floors, stone fireplace, wooden beams, walls, and the underground which contains tunnels, nine caves dating from the Middle Ages, and of course the grotto. All of this is located among the ruins of Etruscan caves and tombs.

Do you instantly see the site below and think “Eames, Starck, and Panton? Of course!” Maybe not, but the modern furnishings do seem to help accentuate the history of the building and vice versa.  The sleek clean lines bring out the texture of the stone, tile, and wood. I particularly like the modern furnishings in the underground caves. You can also enjoy a glass of wine from that stunning wine cellar that houses over 300 labels or relax in the candlelit heated Jacuzzi. Plan to visit? The bridge shown below is the only access so pack your walking shoes.    pb
