Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: Michel Boucquillon & Donia Maaoui, both architects, artist and designer for the most famous Italian Companies.

Why Lucca, Lucca, Italy:
This extraordinary property is located within the hills around the outskirts of Lucca. This dream place is a laboratory, a place of experimentation and meditation for us.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Lets start with the villa being awarded as one of the most ecological and exceptional homes in Italy by TV channel 'National Geographic' http://natgeotv.nationalgeographic.it/le-case-piu-verdi-ditalia. You see...the Villa is built into a hill made of white marble. Its particular window shutters made of iron provide shade in the summer and catch the light deeply in winter, while the convertible roof opens at 30° like the wings of a butterfly to reveal star-studded skies on those warm midsummer nights. Then there's the pool, 26 meters long with an area of 70 square meters with a unique overflow design. The pool includes an area of 16 meters for doing laps, an additional section for recreational activities and a separate hydro massage area. From every angle of the pool as well as from its terrace you can enjoy a breathtaking aerial view of the city centre of Lucca. Accenting both the interior and exterior of the Villa are sculptures from Donia Maaoui. One of many creations is the main floor of the Villa which is organized around a spectacular spiral staircase resembling a long evening gown.
