An adaptation of a small square front villa, incorporating a self-contained studio. A pair of pleated roof forms let in light and views of sky and trees. These ‘twin peaks’ read as broken shards of the original villa roof.
The interior is subtly divided into distinct spaces via the changing geometry of the ceiling. A ramped lawn and serrated concrete steps connect the two new structures on the site.
