the idea, the project and details
THE ORIGINAL PROJECT:
The first Glass House Dream&Charme was built in May 2016 with a project coordinated by architect Piero Lissoni. It is the first of its kind in Italy, offering a 360° view on nature and combining the privacy of a luxury villa with the services and comforts of a 7 star hotel suite. It represents the ideal destination for a truly demanding clientele.
70 square meters where technology and design coexist in harmony, blended into a natural paradise in the heart of Monferrato, land of truffles, great wines, nature and incomparable cuisine (UNESCO World Heritage site).
Highlights of the Glass House are the SPA with chromotherapic hammam and sauna, a high tech home automation system and iconic Italian design furniture for both inside and outside.
GLASS HOUSE 2.0:
The Glass House 2.0 is based on the planning, realization and business of the first Glass House, which is in operation since April 2016. It has been engineered and optimized, it can be easily carried and settled everywhere in the world, upon obtaining possible certifications required by some countries with special standards.
Below, features, photographies and renderings of the Glass House 2.0, in 35 sqm and 80 sqm versions.
- 35 sqm Glass House, standard setting: 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom.
- 80 sqm Glass House, standard setting: 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom with separated WC, SPA, living room with kitchen area.
Glass Houses are completed in each section, from the structure to systems, furniture, lighting, etc.
Each Glass House model has already been engineered and is available for production and installation.
Glass Houses are provided with all decorative elements identifying them as a Dream&Charme product (for example: external plaque, welcome kit, customized equipment, etc.). - The Nomad version allows the installation of the Glass House anywhere in the world and in complete independence from electrical, hydraulic and sewage networks.
- The Technogym version is equipped as a mini-gym with tools and machines of the famous brand.
BUILDING OF THE HOUSE:
Timing: 99 days since order, installation included (+ carrying time depending on the location of installation).
Carrying: two 40” container (without accessories). A third container could be necessary in case of accessories or further power units for Nomad version.
Permits: they vary depending on the installation Country. In Italy, permits differ from a Municipality to another depending on local strategic plans.
Generally obtaining the Glass House installation permit is easier than obtaining the normal permit to build, because foundations are not required for the installation and the structure can be taken apart.
