Villa and Villa

Images from North Shore Bungalow - beautiful warm, understated interior design by Villa and Villa

I got a lovely email recently from Maria Villa of Sydney architecture / interior design / graphic design firm Villa and Villa. It's always inspiring connecting with new and interesting creative people in this way - however this particular email was even more exciting than ususal, because apparently it was super-stylist Megan Morton who recommended that Maria send some of their recent work in for me to check out! What a huge compliment to think that Ms Morton* might be a Design Files reader! (Even just occasionally). Wow.

Anyway, this is besides the point. The point is - Villa and Villa do some amazing varied work - spanning residential, commercial and retail architecture and interiors, as well as corporate identity and branding, and even visual art! This husband and wife team have an extremely diverse portfolio which includes everything from a super-modern McDonald's restaurant, to this more recent stunning MacMasters residential beach house (below), and the beautiful, understated interior styling of the North Shore Bungalow (photos above).... it seems no job is too big or too small for this prolific duo!

Maria heads up the graphic and interior side of the business, whilst her partner Eduardo takes care of the architecture - the perfect balance!

*(If you're reading Megan, it's only a matter of time before an interview request is headed your way!)
