Italian Summer

When I was 18 I promised myself that I would organise enough money to be able to go on an overseas trip every year. I managed to keep it up until my mid-twenties but unfortunately life and its never ending expenses got in the way. Hopefully one day I’ll have the bank balance to make that happen again. But in the meantime, I’ll have to do with virtual travel.

This amazing farmhouse in Riomaggiore, Italy, was restored and extended by architectural firms A2BC Architects and SibillAssociati. Their approach was to retain as much of the original farmhouse as possible and to blend it seamlessly with the new additions. I would love to spend a hot Italian summer there overlooking the Mediterranean sea.
