OUR PROJECT

To give new life to abandoned places permeated by the beauty of time and silence. To listen to their souls and intervene with respect and balance. To travel the world and bring back objects full of suggestions. To harmonize bio-architecture, design and contemporary art with original features and local materials. To imagine each dwelling as if it were meant for us. And to welcome and assist you with all the attention that a guest expects.

THE ARTIST’S DESIGN

I have always been attracted to those places and homes where, because of the subtle balance between the natural world, construction by man and the ebb of time, one feels harmony. Some of these places are already perfect, and any further intervention would disturb them. In others, this balance has been improperly modified and, underneath all the modifications, you can sense their natural forces which want to return to their origins. Intervening, therefore, means  listening, because the “genius loci” (the protective spirit) has a subtle voice that necessitates the right time. The architecture of a place is like a sculpture: you must study its volume, light, balance, perspective, and remove superfluous material to discover its soul, liberating it like ancient music which has not been played for a long time. Anime a Sud is more than just a project : It is a vision that I have been pursuing.  Beautiful dwellings saved from oblivion, which now welcome people again. Inside each residence you will find a selection of my works of art and design. For more information visit www.lucagiannini.it.

Luca Giannini

For us, architecture and design are always creative actions with “artisanal” connotations.  We aim to create unique spaces that are marked by tailored elegance, never homologated and strongly connected to the territory.

Contact us for any opportunity related to: 

  • holiday house restyling
  • interior and exterior design
  • placement of contemporary art
