The architects paid their respects to traditional Italian architecture while drawing inspiration from modern architecture for Le Ville di Trevinano, with an ultimate goal of minimizing the resort’s impact on the environment. The earth sheltered villas at Le Ville de Trevinano are “pushed into” the Tuscan hills, which act as insulation so the villas won’t freeze and are energy efficient. The villas draw power from the sun and are equipped to collect rainwater.

Tuscan stone adorns the modern villas, which offer panoramic views of the hills with floor-to-ceiling windows. The villas include private patios and pools, and gardens planted with Cyprus trees and native plants. The low, wide design of each villa ensures it doesn’t mar the surrounding natural beauty, but rather fits in elegantly with the Tuscan hills.
