This poolside sunken seating area was designed for an Italian winery
As part of the design of Le Monde winery in north east Italy, Alessandro Isola has designed a private poolside retreat, that features this sunken seating area, for the guests of the winery.
At the far end of the garden this timber surface seems to fold back on itself, raising up on curved steel beams and becoming a shade for the sunken seating below.
The pool is divided into two separate sections by stone steps that sit just above the level of the water, giving the illusion that they float.
