Motelparo Villa: an old stable turned into a contemporary vacation house

Motelparo Villa is located in the romantic landscape of great Tuscany. The preserved villa functions as the ideal private vacation resort. The architect Ilana David, partner at Roy David Studio, was motivated to transform the old stable into the desired vacation house by preserving its original structural style. In order to overcome the strict preservation laws, each of the original stones which constructed the old stable facades was numbered, disassembled and reconstructed after being validated for it structural strength. The overall interiors of the villa were designed in a style affiliated with rough terra-cotta stone flooring, installed in fishbone angular arrangements, wooden beams, local plaster techniques, white, brown & pinkish color palates and ceiling ceramic tiles. On top of each of the windows, one can observe the horizontal wooden beam which was originally placed as a structural solution for the top of the windows. All the original details such as the window & door handles were refurbished and placed back in their original place.
