House in Italy

The refurbishment and remodelling of a farmhouse and outbuildings on a magnificent site, with fantastic views out over the Italian countryside.

The main house was re-planned with courtyards and a glazed entrance. A concrete tray was formed around the perimeter of the house with the addition of a contemporary pergola. The owner, one of Britain’s best known and successful designers played a major part in what was a highly creative and enjoyable collaboration between architect, landscape architect, and interior designer. The house is set within extensive grounds, which have been set out to a design by Arne Maynard.
