Vineyards and olive groves surround Villa Abruzzo, located in the north of the Italian region of Abruzzo, just a few kilometres from the Adriatic coast. The bungalow was designed and furnished by the interior architect and designer Davide Rizzo. Rizzo is Berlin-based but active worldwide and Villa Abruzzo also boasts an international flair. The bungalow is inspired by Californian mid-century architecture. Interior and exterior spaces merge through the many windows and through recesses in the roof. The projecting roof has a large opening through which palm trees grow; the interiors have skylights. The walnut cladding of the walls is also typical of the 50s style. The modern, elegant interiors – partly furnished with pieces designed by Rizzo himself – have a distinctly urban character. A dash of colour, works of art and unusual accessories define the ambience. In addition, there are omnipresent views over the hilly landscape.
Villa Abruzzo has an open plan living area with sitting area, dining area and kitchen and three bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. The house is surrounded by several terraces and has an outdoor kitchen and an infinity pool.
