Peacock Room, Castello di Sammezzano, Tuscany, Italy 

Less than 40 kilometres south of Central Florence, located in Leccio in the municipality of Reggello, lies the unique Castello di Sammezzano (Castle of Sammezzano). Surrounded by an oak tree grove and situated on the top of a hill, the abandoned Castello di Sammezzano is an extravagant residence beyond comparison.

It’s hard to believe that this jaw-dropping Peacock Room is located in an abandoned castle in Tuscany, Italy. Built in 1605 and once housed kings, Sammezzano Castle now sits atop a hill in a Tuscan oak tree grove untouched by modern times.

Within the castle you can find the Peacock Room, a hidden jewel features intricate Moorish designs and a breathtaking assortment of patterns and colors. The beauty of the memorizing interiors is simply beyond comparison.

The extravagant residence Castello di Sammezzano sits on top of a hill in Tuscany, Northern Italy. Originally it was built in the Moorish style in 1605 for Ximenes d’Aragona and then re-designed between 1853 and 1889. After the war the castello was used as a luxury hotel until closure in the mid to late 1990′s. It was abandoned until April 2012 when the FPXA committee was formed, aiming to promote and enhance the castle.

The Architecture of the Mind

There is an oddity in our thinking that is closely reflected in our design. We love order. The mind seeks to impose it upon the world. We admire sparsity of space and austerity of style. Yet, we are more comfortable in seeming chaos. Houses that fill with clutter, relationships that appear illogical, conversations that have no beginning, middle or end, much less a positive outcome.

We are, it would appear, a living contradiction. We love sparse design because it tells us much about what we are not and less about what we aspire to be.

This is the exhibition spaces in the New Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.

Take a last look at our old design.

After almost ten years on the road, some of chrome is losing it's gloss and we're just not getting the mileage we used to get.

Standby for our new design built for mobile from the ground up. (Note to +Andy Wigglesworth :) )
