Roy David Studio has transformed an old stable into the vacation house called Motelparo Villa. Located in the landscape of Marche Region, Italy, the villa, completed in 2015, has a total floor area of 200m² (2,153ft²).
The architects faced a great challenge which was on the one hand preserving the old country side style of building and on the other hand designing an uncompromising architecture and interior design.
The overall interiors of the villa were designed in a toucan style affiliated with rough terracotta stone flooring installed in a fish-bone angular arrangements, wooden beams, local plaster techniques, white, brown & pinkish color plates and ceiling ceramic tiles. On top of each of the windows one can observe the horizontal wooden beam which was originally placed as a structural solution for the top of the windows. All the original details such as the window & doors handles were refurbished and placed back in their original place. Even the original iron rings which were designated for tethering the horses where refurbished and kept in place. In that manner the architects were able to preserve not only the overall look and feel of the place but also its spirit.
The adherence to details approach and the use of Lo-Fi technologies results in an ease and honest vacation house which serves the client initial wishes and expectations.
