Umbrian Farm House

Masterplanning of a derelict olive plantation and redundant farm buildings. The main barn was restored and linked to a new guest wing with a separate guest cottage sitting on the northern terrace. The guest wing and cottage were designed to be cut into the hill so as to be invisble from the approach road. The barn retains a rustic feel while the new wing and cottage are contemporary. Terraces are formed to the north and south and the principal barn elevation opens up to views down the mountain to the west. The designs were developed in London with an executive architectural team in Rome completing the technical design and construction with close monitoring from the UK to retain the original design intentions.
