All About

Lake Como

01.

Surroundings

Lake Como is the third largest lake in all of Italy and one of the deepest lakes in Europe at 656 ft. below sea level. With its ancient history, stunning scenery, numerous famous villas, gardens and quaint villages nearby, there are many discoveries to be made. Lake Como has been a popular romantic retreat for aristocrats and celebrities starting before the Romans.

Lake Como is, with the warmth of its local people in a private romantic setting apart from any other. Lake Como and its surroundings offer many diverse summer and winter activities year-round. The quaint villages of Varenna, Mennagio, Lenno, Tremezzo and many others as well as the only island on the lake, Isola Comacina should not be missed. The city of Como is known for its silks, the walled city and the Duomo. The famous village of Bellagio is known for its rich history and spectacular villas.

02.

Shopping

With its ‘hub’ location Lake Como is not far from other major towns and cities. To the east is Bergamo, the town has of two centers: “Città alta” (upper city), a hilltop medieval town and the “Città bassa” (lower city); famous for music, amazing fabrics and exceptional handmade furnishings. South of Como is Milan, known for the ‘Last Supper’ by Leonardo da Vinci, La Scala Opera House, the Galleria (glass roof mall), Duomo, and designer shops such as Gucci, Versace and Valentino.

03.

Local Bus Tickets

Bus tickets must be purchased prior to boarding at newsagents or Café’s/Tabacci which display a ‘T’ sign outside, or at the bus depot in Como. Fares depend on the distance. As most ticket sellers speak little English, it is advisable to have the route written down in advance for convenience. Tickets are not dated and so may be used on any future date.

04.

Lake Ferry

The ferry has been developed around the lakes area since the 1800’s, when the first steamship was intorduced on the lake. Ferries are a wonderful way to see the lake from another vantage point where classic Italian lake-images of sparkling water, splendid water-side villas, gardens, and tiered villages set against a background of green or distant snow-covered mountains create a stunning landscape. A day excursion ticket for the central lake area Bigletto Giornaliero per Il Centro Lago will allow day-long use of ferries to view the most beautiful villages of the lake. In this way you will be able to enjoy stops in each town to enjoy the sights, and linger over refreshments without the cares of driving.

Positano, Italy.

Villa Positano

TypePrivate house

StatusBuilt

Year2014

Size1500sqft


The true protagonist of this project is a collection of antique ceramics from Vietri, entrusted with the role of exalting the particular elements that make the famous Villa in Positano a contemporary architectural masterpiece.

The harmonious composition of hand-painted ceramic tiles, the great passion of the villa’s owners, wraps a long ribbon of steel like a decorative skin. The ribbon is used to articulate the double height spaces of a former eighteenth-century monastery, linking the villa’s three levels.

It begins on the ceiling, dropping down a six-meter high wall to become a shelf in the large living room on the first floor, a platform, intersecting the stairs leading to the kitchen on the ground floor. The ribbon then transforms into the dining room table, finally climbing back up toward the ceiling to house the lighting fixtures. All without any interruption.

Size3000sqft


The project is located in Mohali, a satellite town of Chandigarh that is witnessing fast paced growth like most Indian cities.

The brief of the client, a builder was to design a house for selling that would be universal in character so that it is acceptable & appreciated by all kinds of end users ranging from a high earning professional to a wealthy farmer.

The overall concept was devised as a free plan with overlapping spaces to allow flexibility. However, the movement was choreographed so as to unfold the layers as one moves along the vertical axis of the house.

The Elwood House

Year2012

Size3000sqft


The Elwood House is a new residential dwelling with a separate garage and studio to the rear. The client’s brief was for a modern family home that was interesting and exciting but not to the detriment of the comfort to the occupants and within a sensible budget.

“The client wanted a house that was clean, distinctive and enjoyable to use without feeling like they were an object in their own home because it was of a contemporary design” says the architect, Patrick Jost.

Conceptually, the house is separated into two clearly defined elements to the upper and lower levels.

Brandywine House

TypePrivate house

StatusBuilt

Year2013

Size4000sqft


Located within close proximity to Rock Creek Park, and with easy access to the shops and restaurants on Connecticut Avenue, this large lot in Northwest Washington, DC presented a desirable opportunity for a young family to build a new house in this sought-after neighborhood.

Designed to respect both the scale of neighboring houses and the rhythm of the streetscape, the project aligns with adjacent houses while retaining the vast majority of mature trees and green space located between the street and the house. Materials composing the exterior, which include stone, wood and stucco, evoke traditional materials found throughout the neighborhood. The house appears relatively solid when viewed from the street with strategically placed windows insuring privacy to the street-facing spaces.

The “L” shaped house is organized around the outdoor living spaces and swimming pool, and is oriented towards the large, south facing rear yard.

ICRAVE Office

TypeOffice

StatusBuilt

Year2014

Size8000sqft


After rapid growth, ICRAVE, a New York-based experiential branding and design firm, made the move to an 8,000-square-foot studio with the intention of really making it their own. The space, designed by the ICRAVE team itself, goes beyond the notion of an open plan office — it is designed specifically to foster ICRAVE’s immersive, collaborative culture.

The design process was a collective effort of the entire ICRAVE studio. Dream sessions were held to harvest ideas, where team members examined different areas and said, “Now, what if we could have...,” giving everyone a chance to bring their ideas to the table. Among those options, ICRAVE then crowdsourced the best solution for each micro-environment, and created a one-of-a-kind office. The result is a truly collaborative office space that fosters employees' creativity, interaction, and inspiration.

The reception desk doubles as a DJ booth, and the entrance plays host to archery matches. The conference room features large monolithic doors that swivel 360 degrees to open and close the space as needed. The kitchen and conference room are separated by a chalkboard that can be raised to create bar seating next to the kitchen or lowered to be used in meetings.
