The clients asked for a home in which they could enjoy the outdoors year around and still be comfortable. Keeping their request in mind, the architect created protected patios and courtyards that are filled with indirect light during the day and offer shelter from the weather, which can be especially severe on this side of the island.
There are private rooms on the upper-floor, that are more protected and enclosed. The architectural typology follows and adheres an almost classical Scamozzi and Palladian central plan design, with two lateral wings enclosing one area for the kitchen and double height space on living room.
