Text description provided by the architects. The extension of this villa to include an independent secondary house uses the relationship between the interior spaces and the wide terrace open to the vineyard landscape.

The entrance, located between the existing villa and the extension, is hidden behind a small bamboo garden.

On the first floor, a smooth brass structure divides the space. The bedroom is behind a folding screen, creating privacy.

The extension creates a patio for relaxation, and brings light into the downstairs guest room.
