Etruscan Fortress

When the family who live in Royal Terrace bought their dream home in Tuscany, a hilltop fortress, they asked us to help them make it work for their lifestyle. The building had been renovated in a minimalist style some years before but the new parts were showing their age. This family is full of personality and they were keen to express that in this home, they wanted colour and comfort. They also needed to be able to invite lots of guests so the top floor was converted into a large studio room that could sleep up to four people and we added a shower area where you could wash whilst gazing over the hills to the sea. With no road to the house and everything had to be carried up by hand, including the commercial cooker and slabs of local marble for the guest kitchen. We re-covered sofas from their previous Edinburgh home and shipped them to Italy. 
The whole project was a real adventure!
