Villa CP

A modern estate in the envelope of an old stone ruin surrounded by 25 hectares of forest with views of the Mediterranean.

House and garden are connected on various levels, with living spaces on the first floor allowing direct access to the newly created south facing garden and natural swimming pool. Bedrooms on the lower floor stay cool in summer.

The choice of materials creates a stark contrast between the uneven old walls and the geometric interventions. Locally grown cork is used for insulation behind panels of clay and straw.
