THE CONCEPT FOR THE CANTONI HOUSE WAS BORN FROM THE DESIRE TO ACHIEVE A MARRIAGE OF GREAT MODERN ARCHITECTURE WITH THE CANTONI COLLECTION OF MODERN FURNISHINGS WHILE UTILIZING THE COMPLETE RESOURCES OF THE CANTONI DESIGN STUDIO.
The name of the Cantoni house, “Axis” takes inspiration from the home’s magnificent architecture. The theory behind the name is that the house was designed using primary and secondary visual axis. The primary axis runs the full length of the house and connects all the interior and exterior spaces. The secondary axes define spaces off of the main axis such as the formal living room, dining, master suite and office. The whole experience of walking through the house reinforces the axis theme. Enter through the large pivot front door and your view is of a dazzling outdoor sculpture. In fact every axis ends with a dramatic focal point. At times a sculpture. Another time a fabulous tree or the pool and gardens. Axis was designed for living and entertaining. The home is laid out on the plot of land to divide the property in order to create courtyards on either side of the house. Both offer incredible views from inside the home. In the downstairs family area, a dramatic 22’ long counter connects the state-of-the-art custom Italian kitchen, bar, and family room together for a seamless space - perfect for entertaining family and friends. In fact, the whole family room opens to the pool, courtyard and a peaceful covered terrace.
