The entire residence has the ambiance of a relaxed retreat surrounded by idyllic farms and hills that become a part of the interior thanks to the use of large openings. Much of the original stone structure and the trusses that support the roof were preserved and they remind you of the home’s historic past.
A beautifully curated garden leads the way to the grand private entrance of the house. Architects used a mix of Brazilian Ipe wood and glass to shape the exterior of the residence while aluminum louvers were used to keep out the harsh Miami sun.
From old churches that were reinvigorated to house trendy bookstores to towers from the Renaissance period that hold chic modern homes here is a collection of the most audacious renovations on the planet.
A neutral color palette is used along with low-slung decor to ensure that the focus stays firmly outside. An overhanging terrace and a lavish backyard tempt the homeowners to spend more time outside than indoors.
The idea behind the design of the house was to create a setting that encouraged interaction among the family members and steered them toward a more unassuming relaxed lifestyle. From the outside the house looks barely spectacular but surprises you with a fascinating blend of and on the inside.
