Our challenge was to create the feeling of an established, stately home with a completely new build. We chose limestone for the exterior façade; a natural stone with minute imperfections along its edges, similar to the stone buildings of Europe. The three established olive trees originally growing on-site have been preserved and will take centre stage at the new front door.
“The outdoor terraces feature deep portals akin to an alfresco living room. The depth also creates privacy, so each space feel less like an apartment and more like a standalone home.”

“What impressed us most was the size of the terrace in the front. You just don’t get a terrace like ours. And the fact we have two. A lot of units that we looked at couldn’t even fit a table and chairs.”
