Villa Mugiasca, situated in Villa Guardia, near Como, is the result of the project of renovation by the architect Simone Cantoni, who, between 1788 and 1804, under the commission of the Bishop Gian Battista Mugiasca, restructured the existing structures of the old villa built in the XVII century in a neoclassical style. Hus has followed the renovation of some parts of this historical building between 2017 and 2018, both as architects and project managers.
Part of the mezzanine floor of the villa hosts an apartment for the mother in law of the owner, linked to the villa but with its own independence. The main gesture for the renovation of this space was the demolition of one ceiling and the creation of one wall within the main space. As a result, the apartment finds its origin in a double height squared living room with eight doors, whose dimensions are intensified by the compression of the spaces adjacent to it. Every space is connected with this central cornerstone of the house and the parquet floor follows the same principle, finding its center in the middle of the living room and expanding in the other spaces following all the directions. The two bathrooms have been designed as two opposed monochrome shells, one in black resin and one in white resin.
