Holiday House in Gargnano

This Holiday House by Titus Bernhard Architekten sits on a steep slope about 300 meters above the west shore of Lake Garda, in the park-like outdoor area with a view of the lake, in the ground area of ​​an old rustico Guest quarters. So in order to obtain a building permission, the ancillary uses are under the ground and thus do not appear as part of the building volume. A spectacular infinity pool follows the contours. The rustico and the “limonaia” are rebuilt with traditional dry stone walls, but double with a cavity, and therefore retain an explicitly rough, haptic character. The ensemble conveys a warm, distinguished, rustic atmosphere. Landscape and building, nature and artifact: a symbiosis to feel at home in.

Lunch at Limone sul Garda, a town in the province of Brescia in Lombardia, Northern Italy, on the shore of Lake Garda. Despite the presence of famous cultivations of lemons, the town’s name is probably derived from the ancient “lemos” (elm) or “limes” (Latin: boundary, referring to the communes of Brescia and the Bishopric of Trento). Until the 1940′s the city was reachable only by lake or through the mountains; the road to Riva del Garda was only built in 1932. Today, Limone is one of the most popular tourist resorts in the area. 

In 1979, researchers discovered that people in Limone possess a mutant form of apolipoprotein (’ApoA-1 Milano’) in their blood that induced a healthy form of high-density cholesterol, which resulted in a lowered risk of atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases. The protein appears to have given residents of the village extreme longevity - a dozen of those living here are over the age of 100 (for c. 1000 total inhabitants). The origin of the mutation has been traced back to a couple who lived in Limone in the 17th century. Research has been ongoing to develop pharmaceutical treatments against heart disease based on mimicking the beneficial effects of the mutation.
