Contemporary villa in Como, Italy

It is the interweaving of the volumes that characterizes the project of Alserio, a private building of 750 square meters on 3 levels, designed by the architect Annalisa Mauri who explains:

“The articulation of the compositional elements is suggested by three main directions, recovered from the morphology of the site and from the perspective development: the lake on the one hand, the mountains on the other.”




“The plant has three positions, like a Y whose main segment is dedicated to the living area: here, the large living room with double height houses a large fireplace, whose long chimney acts as a vertical counterpoint – in 7 meters high.


The third interpretation is dedicated to water: an indoor pool looks at an outdoor one, respecting the same alignment as if it were a single pool. An ideal connection that builds a game of matches between inside and outside.
The sleeping area, at the express request of the client, has smaller areas: intimate environments designed to live intimacy and relaxation.”



RiFRA has collaborated with the architect in the choice of kitchen and bathroom furniture.

The kitchen chosen is the ONE model, with its characteristic 45° cuts, along the entire perimeter of the furniture.
The composition is developed with island, wall bases and wall columns.


The finish chosen for both the island and the wall bases, is the Black Cement, spatula by hand.
This material, combined with the technique of manual processing gives a materiality and a unique appearance to the kitchen.


The island is completed by a thick snack table/counter in Antique Oak.


The top of the bases is made of Laminam Calce Nero, a material that has the same shade as the Black Cement finish, and can be worked to allow perfect shaping at 45°.


The columns, again from the ONE collection, but with a pure white matt lacquer finish, have been created to measure.


The bathrooms have been furnished with the collection K.One, which resumes the design concepts of the kitchen ONEcollection.

The K.ONE bath furniture is suspended and manufactured in one piece, with measures ranging from 80 cm. to 240 cm.
This allows us to have as the final result of the lines even and without interruptions, with the 45° shape that continues throughout the perimeter of the mobile, both in the upper, lower and side sides.


Continuity is also represented in the choice of materials: Mobile K.One is from the same black concrete finish, hand-made, of the kitchen.

Complete the composition the model box washbasin in Corian by support, the RiFRA wave taps in Satin Steel and the 2 HD Mirror.


The bathrooms of the villa have been furnished with RiFRA products of complement to the collections of furniture, in this photo you can notice the circle tub in corian from 180 cm. in Diameter, the shower plate also in corian of the in-Line Collection, and the wave steel taps.

We thank architect Annalisa Mauri and the customer for the trust in RiFRA.
