Contemporary Cotswold house

Contemporary Cotswold house designed by Abitalia

Abitalia have recently completed this not so stereotypical Cotswold house - a stunning balance between refined contemporary details and the organic materiality of the stone. Abitalia’s involvement in the house over looking Cheltenham; included the designing and installation of the kitchen, utility kitchen, bathrooms and wardrobes, as well as supplying the stone flooring.

This bespoke kitchen by Effeti was handmade in Tuscany finally delivering an outstanding, timeless finish. The kitchen being left with a lacquer custom finish leaving a shine and subtle reflection of light throughout the kitchen creates a contemporary living space for our client fit for cooking and entertainment. The main feature of this stunning kitchen is the marrone stone cladding which completes the wall. Our clients kitchen was installed with the complete set of Gaggenau appliances. The beautiful centre piece of this gleaming kitchen is of course designer Santambrogio glass table which seats 8 people as shown above and again creates space and light throughout the kitchen.

Dani Marmi’s flooring was fitted throughout the contemporary Cotswold house. The 20mm stone tiles sized 800x800 which are the Quarzite Marrone span across 200 square metres of the ground floor. The house as a final piece was left with a smooth and clean cut finish much like the tiles leaving a unique contemporary feel.

The exterior of the house magnifies the beauty of the surrounding area emphasising on the contemporary design of the house. The glass doors create peace and serenity inside and outside of the house leading you out onto the balcony where you can view the picturesque scenery in your own comfort. The contemporary outdoor furniture carries out the minimalistic design into the outdoors. Gandia Blasco’s ‘Flat’ collection of outdoor furniture which is available from Abitalia is now the centre piece of the balcony overlooking Cheltenham.

Designers are rarely given the privileged oppurtunity to work on such a high level project. When asked almost two years ago to produce the plans and design for this house we were delighted, as alongside the client we too are able to enjoy the feeling of accomplishment as the overall project was a beautiful addition to Ham Hill.

Emu outdoor garden furniture delivered by Abitalia

Emu garden furniture by Abitalia South Coast

Early this morning, Abitalia delivered the beautiful Heaven armchair, sofa and table to our client in the Cotswolds. The outdoor furniture collection is called Ivy, designed by Paola Navone. The contemporary garden furniture is inspired by the ancient art of topiary, creating “furniture-sculptures” that are light and minimal, exploiting the versatility of the metal.

The combination of the contemporary and the historic is stunning. The relationship is enhanced further by the two elements, the house and the furniture, due to the subtle transition between the solid form and the setting. The furniture is light and soft in appearance which is framed by the terrace area.

Aluminium wall panels from Bysteel

At this years Milan fair, Abitalia viewed the latest range of wall panels from Italian manufacturer Bysteel. Made from aluminium these innovative wall panels can be used indoor or outdoor.

The Ra collection pictured above in a cor-ten finish shows an enriched colour that can work well outdoors where other less interesting materials may normally be used. For example in parking garages where lighting is minimal, the Ra panels have been used to soften and brighten the space. 


The Erba collection shown here in matt white is modular and can be arranged in many alternative ways, creating different patterns each time.

This technology and design is also applied to lighting, tables and seating collections.
