The challenge within this project was to introduce the demands and needs of modern life while respecting the architectural heritage and value presented by this old Ammani mansion.

The materials used in the renovation process were traditional and authentic. The major intervention was on the roof top small studio was added upstairs bearing in mind the stepping nature of the old mass which in fact participated in minimizing the effect of the new addition. Minimal intervention in the landscaping took place preserving the old Mediterranean cypress trees on site.
