The conversion of an old villa into a modern light-filled space is a bit of an achievement. The ground floor features a modern kitchen and dining area that open directly to the small courtyard in back though a large sliding glass door. An itty bitty pool and shaded patio make for a relaxed afternoon. Even though the home is small, the designers still took space to make room for a small tree inserted into the living area, providing a bit of natural visual relief and plenty of indirect sunlight.
