Fontanile pool by LAD presents views of the rural italian landscape




PDF: fontanile pool by LAD presents views of the italian landscape 

Located in the old italian city of tarquinia, laboratorio di architettura e design (LAD) has completed a small pool in the garden of a private villa. positioned behind the historic city walls, the intervention is designed to be ‘a machine for observing the landscape’, with two stone walls channeling views like an optical device. Comprising three distinct elements — the landscape, the pool and the deck — the shape and proportions of the project are reminiscent of ‘fontanile’, vernacular structures built to hold natural spring water. the project intends to create a space that exists in harmony with the environment, allowing its users to contemplate the beauty of the surrounding landscape.
