This eighteenth century stone villa, in a small village North of Lucca, presented a unique challenge: while the street façade was grand and elegant, the interior distribution, with small rooms and low ceilings, did not live up to the façade’s standard. The main intervention here was to create a double-height room in the center of the house. This grand living room became the core around which the entire house was organized, opening onto the dining room, library and entrance hall on the ground floor, and connecting all the bedrooms on the second floor.
