Busso < Back
The Bussotti house is a work of global architecture in a space marked by strong expressive connotations where furnishings and surfaces only partially reveal the primary function they are destined for, thus freeing themselves from their proven and traditional role in order to assume valences that transcend their nature and allow them torelate to each other directly and freely in an alternative way.
A spectacular space opens to view as one enters the ground floor into a spacious room with planked oak pavement where an elegant kitchen-area emerges composed of a smooth and uniform white lacquered sculpture that runs the length of the wall to the corner and a white lacquered island with stainless steel surface illuminated from above with elegant white ceramic lights.
This non-kitchen hides its accessories behind openable push-pull shutters refusing its stereotyped role as a collection-container. On the wall of the entry, a large plasma television interrupts the ethereal prettiness of the curtains in white creased tissue that cover the walls.The small bath, characterized by an initial ellipsoidal space, contains a cylindrical sink in corian; a second area is covered in laminated images of blue water bubbles with a WC surrounded by two semi-spherical pieces of furniture in white varnished steel containing, among other things, the toilet brush and toilet paper.
The sculptured staircase, covered in oak, rises with a curvilinear plastic movement to the first floor. The handrail develops in a spiral form and arrives at two meters height at the top from its initial few centimeters, varying in sections during the course of its ascent. The parapet on the first floor is a plate of Visarm tempered glass accompanied lengthwise by a series of lights sunken in the ground.
Attached to the first floor, the large room opens to view, endowed with elegant white
couches and a whitened oak pavement, strongly marked by a pillar and a light-green-tinted beam.
From one of the above-cited cut-outs, this “non-door” leads to one of the two bathrooms on the second floor covered with a white epossidica resin from which a basin box in glass and steel emerges. Continuing our visit to the left of the stairs, the hinted cut-outs of another semi-wall of white lacquer, which also serves as an armoire, give away the presence of the shutter-door by which one accedes to the principle bath, an elegant space subdivided into three separate zones endowed with refined coverings including an entry with ceiling in travertine modules,a central part containing a corian sink with chrome faucets and mirrored armoire opposite
and a space with a ceramic toilet.
The furnishings in white lacquer with their essential forms compose geometric designs that emerge from the green walls, thebed is also characterized by a weak steel sculpture that reflects on the opposite wall armoire entirely covered in mirror.
As with all creations of Architect Micheli, these enveloping spaces have been treated as fragments of architecture and not as volumes to furnish. Every angle of this extraordinary demure expresses the love its creator and his intelligent and exciting clients have for the world of design and architecture.
