We were delighted to be shortlisted for an award for the luxury villa we completed last Summer for the prestigious International Design and Architecture Awards 2018. This project involved the complete overhaul to all the architectural elements of a traditional Portuguese villa with the introduction of new clean sleek lines, natural stone cladding & oversized tall windows creating a beautiful back drop to the fresh white interior design scheme. Having bought a villa in the Algarve as a second home, the brief was to create a contemporary family home for them to make summer memories. The client was clear that the villa should be predominantly white with pops of colour and hints of luxury; however, family life is the centre of this home and white must also be practical! Areas inside and out had to be able to comfortably seat the whole family and friends – this was key.
