Villa Serena, Florence Italy
The design of Villa Serena reflects an aesthetic sensibility as well as a refined lifestyle.
When I think about this project, it was not about creating abundance, it was not about creating a life of luxury for everybody. It was about creating a life of possibility. It was about taking that which was scarce and making it abundant.
“Destiny is not a matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not to be waited for, it is to be achieved.”
- William Jennings Bryan
We wanted to deflate the seriousness of a grand villa, to design something that was stylish and eternal yet progressive and direct.
An essential aspect of creativity is not been afraid to fail
There is calmness to a life lived in gratitude.
This beautiful and beloved project, Villa Serena, will be forever remembered.
