Living within a 14th-century medieval castle does not mean that Patrizio Fradiani, owner of design and architecture firm Studio F, lives an antiquated lifestyle.

Creating the ultimate contrast between contemporary and ancient, the designer has filled his manor with surprisingly modern furnishings with a minimalist aesthetic. Cobblestones, arches and caverns give the manor a rustic glamour that could easily become Gothic and haunting, yet with bright furniture and breezy spaces, the interior is very cheerful and inviting, mixing the best of both worlds. Alcoves and terraces built into the structure provide excellent places for Fradiani's wine rack, patio fixtures and swimming pools.

With an eye for aesthetics, Patrizio Fradiani turned a medieval castle into a stylish and modern mansion.
