Urban villa

We all know that opposites attract. But it rarely ends as harmoniously as in this urban villa, where the contrast between old and new is skilfully played with. Tall spaces, stuccoed ceilings, a smooth iron banister, large double doors and box-type windows are an homage to the 19th century. The interior skilfully switches between being baroque and timelessly modern. Whilst the stylistic echo of the past lives on in the living area, the kitchen and bathroom make a leap into the here and now. And show just how fascinating opposites can be.
