Chic is a modern catalog villa that combines timeless and classic proportions with minimalism and detail simplicity, creating avant-garde architecture.
The characteristic feature of the well-thought-out, optimal spatial arrangement of the villa is the openness of the rooms, which connect functionally with each other. On the 65-square meter ground floor, there is a technical area that includes a double garage, storage space, and boiler room with a laundry facility, and space for built-in wardrobes. The garage has a frontal entrance. However, if the plot allows, we recommend changing its location. An elegant side entrance will hide the large surface of the gate and introduce an additional window at the front of the building.
The entrance to the building leads through a vestibule with sliding glass doors in French style. It also offers additional space for a handy wardrobe or a comfortable seat. The lobby features a beautifully exposed staircase and can be enriched with an effective chandelier, as it is partly two-story. The ground floor includes space for a study room in the front part of the building, a small wardrobe for outerwear, and a toilet.
The living area includes a spacious kitchen with an island, a breakfast area, and has direct access to a pantry. Apart from that, there is a large dining room (8-12 people) and a living room. There are two possible arrangements of the kitchen: as a completely separate room or with an elegant glass door opening towards the dining room. The second option creates a sense of a much wider space. The central living room has excellent lighting conditions and several layout options, which allows the free arrangement of its interior. On the border of these two spaces, there is room for a fireplace. You can enjoy its warmth in both rooms. Besides, the spatial arrangement lets you create an additional 15 square meter guest room with a terrace on the garden side.
The Chic villa’s first floor has an area of over 150 m². It holds a master bedroom, equipped with a large wardrobe and a bathing room, and two smaller bedrooms. Each of them is an independent space with its own, several square meter wardrobe, and a comfortable bathroom with a shower. The master bedroom has a direct exit to the balcony above the terrace on the garden side, while the smallest bedroom connects with the almost 60 square meter terrace above the garage. The simple and carefully planned layout of the upstairs bedroom creates additional arrangement possibilities. This makes personalization much easier and helps us meet investors’ specific expectations at the same time. This floor also contains a several square meter storage space and a small room with an area of 11 m². The latter can serve as a hostess’s study room or a library. This space can be separate or open. In the open variant, the building will gain additional, open for all rest space with access to the front balcony.
Modern villa Chic has no basement and has been designed in traditional brick technology. It is possible to adapt its foundation to the geotechnical conditions of the land. Structural tiles or silicate blocks can serve as the base material of the building, while mineral wool or high-quality polystyrene can be used for its insulation. To achieve a fine-grained finishing of the plaster, we recommend the latter one as it allows to obtain a much smoother and even surface.
The building facade’s finishing is high-quality mineral colored plaster, and all stucco details are performed in lightweight technology. Its elegance is refined by very delicate stucco, in the form of sublime pilasters on the building’s corners, and a crowning cornice below the attic. Subtle bands around windows bring in additional aesthetic value. The windows in this catalog project have a minimalist form and no Viennese muntin bars. Their characteristic features include a division in the upper part and simple lintels. Besides, to add lightness to the building’s front, we designed high glass surfaces there.
The material used for stairs finishing in the main entrance and for the terrace creates a direct composition with the facade. It is a natural limestone that works very well on flat surfaces, and its warm color harmonizes perfectly with the color of the building. However, please bear in mind that the most recommended natural resource for the terrace is granite. It is the only material that will allow this surface to remain unchanged, with minimal maintenance effort.
One of the key elements of this exclusive house is a flat roof finished with an attic, which shapes the building’s innovative form. For its coverage, you can use the titanium-zinc sheet in standing seam profile or high-quality roofing felt. If it is necessary to adjust the roof angle to the provisions of the Local Development Plan or the zoning approval, it is possible to change it within the range of 10 to 15 degrees. Such an adjustment will not affect the aesthetics of the building. The project also contains hidden fall pipes that do not distract visitors’ attention from the facade.
The modern architecture of the villa has been enriched with glass balustrades and LED lighting, which subtly highlights the qualities of the facade after dark. The representative entrance with a double-leaf door is entirely glazed with an additional forged element that forms their outer frame.
During the design work on the villa, we devoted our attention to its immediate surroundings as well. In front of the building, we designed a convenient driveway with a roundabout, the center of which has been filled with a composition of round boxwood shrubs. The same green theme also appears on both sides of the building’s entrance, giving it an original charm. The driveway surface composes of large concrete slabs that harmonize with the nontrivial building block.
The building has a large terrace above the garage and two balconies — above the entrance and on the garden side. The latter partly roofs the ground terrace, giving you a fantastic place to relax. Additionally, it can have vertical glass panels, which will allow you to enjoy this place from early spring to cool autumn days. The short garden lawn, interspersed with flowering shrubs and decorative grass, lets you savor the surrounding greenery throughout the year. Also, the round shrub theme from the driveway continues in the pots on the terraces and balconies.
