Villa Lattuga.

The project aims to tell the following story...


The ruins of an old tuscan villa are discovered at 36.46 N,121.8 W. Remains of four different stone structures can be identified.

The vision is to use the vestiges of the ancient compound as the basis for a modern dwelling. The aged stone wall exoskeleton will host a modern insertion. The four structures are re-imagined as the constituents of a home....

Situated in the mountains on the Santa Lucia Preserve, the dwelling aims to marry the old with the new. The owner's penchant for tuscan villas and Italian countrysides brings character and timelessness to the modern design, showcased through craftsmanship, form making and materiality.
