AGI, an architectural studio, has used mixers from the Ritmonio Diametro 35 collection in a gold finish to complement the sophisticated elegance of the Three Gardens House, a residential building in Al Funaitees, Kuwait.
The Diametro 35 series is one of Ritmonio’s products with water-saving features, characterised by the ECO water flow (less than nine litres per minute), and designed to encourage the use of environmental resources responsibly.
For the project, AGi was tasked with two seemingly contradictory requests – to create an outdoor setting that can be used 365 days a year and, at the same time, configure the interior environment and the various levels of the house to ensure their functionality and privacy.
“Considering the complex climatic conditions of Kuwait, it was necessary to develop a particular strategy that involved dividing the exterior areas into different levels, taking into consideration both the seasons and the different activities to be carried out,” says a spokesman for the Italy-based Ritmonio.
AGi architects studio is noted for its high-quality design solutions which are characterised by creativity and exclusive design. Its ethos is based on continuous innovation, attention to the social and environmental aspects, and research.
Its innovative design solution for the residential building has resulted in the creation of three gardens. The first is a wet garden on the ground floor, equipped with a swimming pool and fountains and surrounded by the main social spaces of the house.
The second, a summer garden, is located in the coolest layer of the complex, 4 m below street level.
“Protected by the thermal mass of the earth and by the shadows created by the building, it includes a large sheet of water designed to catalyse the evapotranspiration that – with convection – refreshes the air that rises towards the upper part of the house,” says the spokesman.
The third garden is located on the roof, an ideal place to spend winter days and warm summer evenings. The perforated skin cover of the building in anodised aluminium filters the sunlight, acting as a shelter for the vegetation. The three gardens are connected by external stairs.
The rest of the house was developed starting exactly from the voids created around these structures, the spokesman says.
He adds movement inside the building is conceived in a fluid way, with multiple paths and the possibility of reaching the rooms in a more or less direct way. “In this way, the public spaces are visually connected to each other, while the rooms dedicated to the family enjoy greater privacy,” the spokesman points out.
The exterior, completely covered in stone, contrasts the walls’ transparency facing the inner courtyard, which is covered with white ceramic tiles that reflect light and help illuminate the rooms in a natural way.
Commenting on Ritmonio’s Diametro 35, the spokesman says it was chosen to enhance the sophisticated elegance of the bathrooms, in line with the mood that characterises the interiors of the house.
“The gold finish fits perfectly with the warm nuances of the coverings, adding a precious touch to the rooms dedicated to wellness. Thanks to its metallic glow, this furnishing element warms the environment and responds to the most contemporary tastes – a must for those who want an interior of authentic class,” he explains.
Ritmonio, meanwhile, has enhanced its Diametro35 and Diametro35 Inox collections with new solutions and details that make a difference and allow for better customisation of the wellness room.
The renewed collections offer comfort, innovative features, and vanguard style, reflecting the contemporary needs of modern bathrooms.
Harmonious geometries and a trendy design are the features that characterise the series, which today offer the possibility to have a longer lever on the basin mixer, and exposed basin mixer and bidet, available for every model to boost ergonomics and ease use.
Diametro35 is completed with a new built-in three-hole basin, available in six different finishings: white, black, chrome, brushed chrome, black chrome, brushed black chrome.
Ritmonio comprises a factory division, which for more than 70 years has manufactured safety valves and brass, copper, aluminium and stainless steel components; and a bath and shower division, which produces designer taps and fittings for bathrooms. By combining fine craftsmanship, design and production skills, Ritmonio creates exclusive and authentic ‘Made in Italy’ products that are functional yet stylish and eco-friendly.
