So you've created the most lavish interior for an upmarket Padua, Italy residence – how exactly do you follow that up on the roof? 

Interior design by Studio Marco Piva (SMP)

From the designer:

The interior design project for this private home, located in the heart of Padua with a panoramic view of the entire city, emphasises the existing spaces and highlights the historical character of the Art Nouveau architecture of the building – this resulted in three totally lavish floors – and this rooftop garden.

On the top floor of the home,  access to the terrace is via a glass skylight that can be opened with a very technologically advanced sliding system, which opens and closes totally automatically. 

By means of a completely hidden motor, innovation combines with the magnificent history of the place, opening up a view of a dreamlike panorama. 

To facilitate the view of the city, a study was carried out in order to create a floating floor raised by about 50cm. 

Finally, a swimming pool made of mosaic and glass is crossed by plays of light and reflections, echoing the colours of the sky, harmonising with some stone detailing and outdoor furniture personally selected by the owner.
