CREATIVE SOLUTION

This design results from an unusual and creative solution to the wish of the owner of this villa, who wanted to add an extra master bedroom and bathroom to his house, without changing the exterior of the characteristic building.

The whole new addition to the house is built underground, with access from within the villa, and also from the garden, through a new sunken patio.

 

SPATIAL DESIGN

With carefully designed vistas through a succession of windows, the rooms are visually connected, and a spatial sequence is created, letting light in, and giving them a comfortable and open atmosphere.
