Casa Olivi

Aproximately 300 years old, this Italian villa has undergone a 4-year long renovation by Swiss architects Markus Wespi & Jêróme De Meuron after a fire in 1995 almost destroyed it entirely.

The house is located in Treia, in the region of Marche. Protected by the Italian Cultural and Historic Administration, the façade was maintained and restored, while the interiors were completely refurbished. The villa was converted into a vacation residence along with a guest house and an infinity pool, overlooking the countryside from atop a gently sloping hill.

The adopted design language is elegantly understated, with light, airy interiors and straight lines, with furniture designed by the architects, but also complemented by names like Vitra and Philippe Stark. What a fine place for a dream vacation!
