Viceroy Maldives Resort & Spa.

A constellation of islands lay in the shimmering waters of the Indian Ocean, where the last true vision of paradise can be found. Less than a one hour flight from Malé, up to the Maldives’ uncharted northern edge, beckons an island of singular beauty. Over 17 acres of palm-edged, pristine sand rises Viceroy Maldives, where only 61 villas encircle a lagoon of startling blue.
No detail remains unanswered, with Viceroy’s unparalleled service enriching the resort’s soaring interiors and elemental lounge areas. Five diverse dining venues, including the Treehouse, offer everything from casual beachside cuisine to elegant fare while incorporating Middle Eastern, Asian and European influences. Treatments and yoga at the Ayurvedic spa are balanced by the island’s wealth of outdoor activities accessible from the Dive & Water Sports Center.

Cassia Antica by JM Architecture.

Remodelling project of a 1960s villa, located in a residential complex along the historic consular roman road which neighbours with the Veio natural park, at the north end of the italian capital. The villa, organized on three levels, has been redesigned in order to accommodate very different functions on every level. The basement level has been dedicated to play and relax areas. This floor is hosting a large spa entirely cladded in teak wood, with a 6 x 2.5 meter counter current lap pool with hydro jets on the other end. On the other side of a clear glass wall there’s a play room. Both areas are read a a large single space due to the glass transparent wall. A sunken patio is bringing natural light to this level and it creates a private outdoor area protected from any sight of the neighbouring villas. The ground level, which is hosting all the daytime functions, is organized on two separated zones, on the left and right side of the entrance catwalk. On the left side are located the kitchen, family room and dining area, while on the right side are located the study room and the living area. Even the 1.800 square meter outdoors are strongly characterized by the use of wood. All decks are paved with Ipe wood. Other materials are gravel inserts, bamboo plants and grass. Cassia Antica was designed by JM Architecture
