Sandra’s Secret Garden

Unconventional living




Montichiari, Brescia - Italy



In answer to an uncommon client’s request for a spontaneous and playful living space, this renovation has converted a basement into a startling secret garden, through a highly performative set-up, in sheer contrast with the minimal feel of the main floor.

Sandra’s secret garden is anunconventional artificial green space, peppered with iconic shapes borrowed from fairy tales, history and fashion, in homage to the lady of the house. Artificial light bathes the whole space from a continuous perimeter strip above, or floats in the shape of the Ala lamp over the hideaway kitchen’s table.
