In Fagagna, Italy, the Lodge Villaverde guest quarters have second floors clad in tinted glass and copper-zinc alloy that cantilever 14 feet over ground levels of concrete layered with marble granulate. Photography by Massimo Crivellari.

Dubbed the Lodge Villaverde, each of the prefabricated, electrically powered structures encompasses 1,400 square feet, sleeps eight, and is outfitted in Afrormosia millwork, ceramic floor tile, Corian bathroom vanities, and contemporary furnishings by the likes of Ross Lovegrove. But the real draw is the exteriors. Alternating between tinted glass are panels of a copper-zinc alloy. “Integration with nature was paramount,” Borta states, “and gold maintains a dialogue year-round, with autumn’s reds, spring’s blooms, and muted winter light.” Adds Burelli: “We look for original solutions.”

Window openings are nearly 25 feet wide. Photography by Massimo Crivellari.
