From the shanty to the straw hut…. Renovation project of a house from the 80s and its extension by the creation of a third bedroom, terraces and a swimming pool. An architecture with Mediterranean accents thanks to the work of chestnut wood and stone collection.
The shaded bamboo canisse terraces lead to an infinity pool giving the illusion of diving into the turquoise waters of the Bay of Palombaggia.

The scrubland and seaside vegetation, pine, bamboo and chestnut tree ganivelle fences give the whole a “Paillote” spirit.
The interior of the resolutely white villa is enhanced by touches of warm colors and mirrors reflecting the blue shades of the Mediterranean. The floors are treated in white industrial resin, the bathrooms in anthracite grey waxed concrete. The custom-made furniture in white wood is a link between inside and outside.
The ensemble is embellished with natural and elegant materials: cottons, linen and natural fibres.
