There are places that have the power to make us feel at home right away: welcomed, protected, cuddled and loved. It is as though they have their own soul and are able to get into close touch with our emotions, generating positive relationships around us. Palazzo Roccabonella, in the heart of Padua, is one such special place. It is one of the most precious and enchanting buildings of the historical centre, originally the home of a Venetian doctor and philosopher. The building was brought to new life and regenerated by the Carron company to house exclusive flats, created for people seeking a magical and engaging relationship with their home and superior living wellness. In fact, to be happy one needs to live in happy places.
Palazzo Roccabonella is the work in which, for the first time in the world, “4D and 5D” procedures have been applied, for the profound well-being of the people and the place, created by architect Caterina Locati. The project combines the most advanced construction technologies with the choice of innovative solutions to guarantee physical comfort. But she takes it one step further, choosing a holistic approach, aimed at ensuring the mental-physical equilibrium of the people and the domestic environment, conceived as a living being. She chose an unconventional approach in the design and renovation to achieve also the intangible rebirth of the building, which includes the energy and the soul of the site.
Even the choice of materials and finishes went beyond the simple aspects of function and aesthetics. The wooden CP Parquet floors were selected for their ability to convey a positive feeling, in addition to guaranteeing great quality. Ethical principles apply to the entire manufacturing process of these products. They are made with wood from sustainable forests that have not been damaged by irresponsible deforestation. The trees are replanted to ensure the balance of the natural site. Processing took into consideration the well-being of man and the environment, respecting such a living and precious material as wood, using water-based paint and glues that are not harmful to health. In particular, the prime Antico Asolo line was selected for the floors of Palazzo Roccabonella, choosing splendid oak, the tree of life. Since ancient times, this tree has represented a strong symbolic value. Having strong, large roots that grow deep into the earth and branches that stretch up to the sky, it was believed that it was able to establish connections between the physical world and other spiritual dimensions. This choice of wood was the best for accompanying the rebirth of this site and integrating with a new and cosier idea of living, where people live in harmony with the energies around them. The oak CP Parquet floors feature a herringbone pattern using large panels of remarkable width and spectacular length. They were finished by hand in Italy with great care. The fine craftsmanship is another element of value that charges the parquet floor with energy and feelings. The craftsmen are aware that their approach to their work affects the finished product and enhances the positive effects. They are provided with the best conditions of well-being to work with passion and attention to detail, expressing the creativity of their craft through high quality processing.
