The clients brief to BGD Architects was to design a home that not only echoed this style, but that would readily accommodate a growing family. It was crucial that the design incorporate durable, natural materials such as timber and stone to keep an organic, grounded feel to the overall finish of the project. Each room is bathed in light offering views onto the central garden and pool. Ravello travertine was chosen for pool surrounds and the outdoor entertaining areas as the natural patina ages well, is low maintenance and easy to keep clean. While La Roche limestone was chosen for the fireplace hearth, as its caramel tones blended perfectly with the timber floorboards.
