Canticle Luxury Apartment in the Historical City Center of Lucca, Italy (1)

Canticle Luxury Apartment is a new residence designed by Italian studio Studiòvo. Canticle is located in Lucca, the capital of Tuscany, Italy.

Description by Studiòvo: The appeal of the latest technology in the poetic context of the historic center of Lucca. A song blending ancient and modern melodies, a “Canticle”: the brand-new residence in the heart of one of Italy’s most fascinating medieval centers. A convenient, prestigious jumping-off point, in any season of the year, for exploring Lucca and indeed all of Tuscany while staying close to Versilia’s fabulous seaside. For those of us who understand vacationing as an emotive luxury experience.

“Canticle” offers ample spaces: a 120-square-meter interior subdivided into a living area, two double bedrooms, two baths, a hammam, and an enormous terrace that projects the residence out over the city for (among other things) a splendid 360° view of the Lucca city walls and the broad surrounding swathe of green. “We propose furnishings that ‘break’ with the classic context of the historic center,” explain Marco Vincenzi and Andrea Caturegli of Studiòvo, the designers of the interiors and the terrace, and Amerigo Giannoni, of Officine 3076, the general contractor for the work. “We invested in lighting as a central element and we have given every single item making up the furnishings an identity: decorative, certainly, but also – and above all – functional.”

The lighting project is complex, conceived to offer many options for modulating a great number of lighting parameters to create changing scenarios over the course of the day and in each different space of the home. Even greater care, were that possible, was taken with the furnishings: everything is made to measure! Like the spectacular kitchen, designed by Studiòvo, with its surfaces describing an unusual, uninterrupted curve. A masterpiece of expert joinery that put the skills of the Officine 3076 craftspeople to the test: they not only built the furniture but were responsible for fitting them, like a hand into a glove, into the unfinished shell of the home. The kitchen also features high-tech professional appliances and is always stocked with a selection of typical, quality local food and wine products to welcome guests’ arrival.

Each room is equipped with a latest-generation Smart TV, manageable via iPad (thanks to a personalized app) from any corner of the home – just like the cable sound system. The two baths communicate through the hamman/shower area, with its bioethanol-fired hearth that sets a contemporary mood.

The terrace, unique in its genre, offers an intriguing view of the tree-studded Lucca city walls from three sides and is equipped for total relaxation with a teak solarium and heated infinity-edge minipool with hydromassage and chromotherapy capability.

Despite its location inside the perimeter of the Renaissance walls, the residence is accessible by car via a straightforward urban route. From the underground garage with reserved parking spaces, an elevator takes guests directly to the apartment. Perimeter and volumetric alarm systems, integrated air-conditioning, and in-floor heating are the finishing touches to unique “Canticle” residence – for a five-star stay in Lucca…
