Casa Bianca - The architecture of the house was inspired by the old Greek temples still found on Sicily to this day. The house measures 8 meters in height and is partly divided into 2 separate floors with a “gallery” running the interior length of the house. This provides a view down into the multi-tiered living area, creating a sense of defined spaces without the need for walls. The 7,5 meter tall windows serve a dual purpose: they allow plenty of natural lighting into the house whilst painting stunning vertical sceneries of Sicily from a 750-meter plateau at the foot of the Etna volcano.The interior draws heavily on classic Danish architecture and design from furniture to art and lighting with pieces from such legendary masters as Arne Jacobsen, Poul Henningsen, Anne Visbol, Karl Age Riget, Egill Jacobsen and Carl-Henningsen Pedersen. The kitchen and bathrooms remain true to Italian design with furnishings and fittings from Boffi and Valcucina.The house emphasizes the use of the dark tropical wood Wenge, steel and glass. Christina also made use of the same materials in her custom-designed interior and exterior dining tables, side tables, staircase and main entrance door.
