Private Villa

Residential Renovation of a Villa

Ample Garden Terraces
The work at this private villa began rather modestly when Xavier David was asked to inspect a plumbing issue. One thing lead to another and soon the scope of the project had grown into a major renovation of the entire property.

Of the original three bedrooms, two were completely demolished and rebuilt. At the garden level, the space of the old cistern was converted into an exercise room and a fourth bedroom suite. In order to even out the floors of the villa, the land was regraded which also resulted in ample garden terraces.

Excavation adjacent to the original villa made way for newly built kitchen and dining spaces (both interior and exterior). Even an outdoor basketball court was added which does double-duty as a guest parking courtyard. Lastly, the colonial style of the villa was subtly enhanced by refining paint colors, woodwork details and rooflines.
