The three-storey “Rose Villa” has had many previous lives and is saturated with layers of memory: soil and bricks, charcoal fire traces, water infiltrations and mould. Water, earth and fire not only inhabited, but also ruled this house. It was therefore only natural to develop a new interior that embraces and harmonises these elements. Together with the choice of new materials to mix with the existing ones, the colour palette of blues, browns and reds highlight these features. A dominant red meets the rusty colours of the brickwork in the kitchen, a calming blue converses with the earthy tones of the tiling in the bathroom, while a subdued clay tome in the library allows the glossy varnish of the flooring to shine into the forefront.
