Villa in the Italian countryside

Project Details

Alteration to existing property, Listed Building - Grade II


Flair Studio Ltd

181 Blythe Road , London , W14 0HL , United Kingdom

Over the years Flair Studio redecorated and restored a grade listed estate by enhancing the quality of the architecture and playing with colours and fixtures to recreate evocative environments. Two separate apartments have been created within the residential part of the villa, while a space for events has been located towards the rural wings. The refurbishment was non disruptive with special attention to group and hide the new services. The former rural pit was turned into a swimminpool, which is integrated within the landscape. The outcome is a sequence of lived-in and evocative interiors, surrounded by memories of the past.
