Villa Riva, Island Vis, Croatia

Another unexpected delight from the team at Design Clarity.
Residential design renovation and project management through to completion in readiness for the 2017 European holiday season.

DC designers from our Sydney and London studios have been lucky enough to work together on the renovation design for this 200 year old Venetian villa on the idyllic Dalmatian island of Vis, halfway between the Croatian and Italian coastlines. Situated on a small square right on the waterfront or ‘riva’ in a picturesque village, Villa Riva has stunning views back across the bay.

The recent renovation included a refresh on all four levels, with new white timber painted floorboards throughout to convey that pristine island holiday feel. A new third master bedroom was added, along with an ensuite bathroom on the ground entry level. And the kitchen was relocated up to the top entertaining level with direct access to the top dining terrace and its spectacular views. The two main bathrooms on the middle floors also underwent a total rebuild with new Italian encaustic tiled floors, a solid timber vanity and a more premium walk-in shower experience using the award-winning NZ Methven Aurajet Aio shower system. Guests have the benefit of an elevated service offer, from the conveniently located drinks fridge in the new welcome bar at entry level, the large format Netflix-enabled smart TV, to the complementary bathroom amenities by NYC brand Malin+Goetz.
