Italian leading manufacturer of wellness products and services Technogym provides design-led fitness equipment designed to improve both mental and physical wellbeing in the most exclusive residences of the world
Immersed in the greenery of the famous Sardinian Costa Smeralda, Villa Emma is located at a short distance from the sea and its design was influenced by the key role of the environment; as a result, emissions for both heating and air-conditioning are reduced thanks to the use of passive devices.
Villa Emma features a space dedicated to both fitness and wellness, where Technogym equipment perfectly blends in with the minimal and clean lines of the architectural environs.
Mario Mazzer Architects selected Technogym’s equipment for this space of the villa in virtue of its state-of-the-art, technical solutions and their minimal lines, able to perfectly complement the aesthetic of the house. The gym features a selection of Technogym products like Bench Personal, Kettlebell and Dumbell allowing to train in the serenity of domestic spaces.
To design the gym space was like working on the mechanism of a clock, the architectural practice explains, we applied the same attention to detail and materials. As a result, all the different finishes are in perfect dialogue between each other and the room; like the smoked oak with small slats for walls and ceiling, the double backlit opal glass with a unique brass mesh providing a unique lighting and atmosphere or the Lapitec stone for the flooring specified for the entire house, which is also suitable for the gym thanks to its resistance.
Flawless design, attention to detail and product elegance effortlessly complement a space conceived to improve psychophysical balance of those who live it.

Villa Emma is a universe of lines that play poetically with the sky and the earth. The hand-split granite stones on the ground floor are immersed in the natural landscape and create materiality in a game of lights and shadows, while the sliding windows on the first floor reflect the blue sky and can transform the house into a terrace when fully open. Continuity has been emphasised by using the same material for the internal and external floorings thanks to the sintered stone Lapitec, also used for the swimming pool. The opening was conceived in all aspects of design, outside with nature and inside with a strong link between the different living spaces of the family.
