The exclusive villa Délicate is a classic catalog house. Its captivating delicacy is highlighted by timeless stucco details in the form of elegant cornices and rustic works on the building’s corners.
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 first floor of the Délicate villa is close to 190 m². It has a master bedroom and three smaller bedrooms. The master bedroom is equipped with a large wardrobe and a bathing room containing a dressing table and a beautifully exposed freestanding bathtub. With their area ranging from 17 to 22 m², the smaller bedrooms are located on the garden side. This way, each of them offers a beautiful view of the greenery. Additionally, their large windows care for providing the right amount of daylight. Each bedroom has space for studying, a comfortable 1.6-meter wide bed, and space for a large built-in wardrobe. Children’s bedrooms have a shared bathroom including a bath, a shower, double sinks, a toilet, and a bidet. 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 has an additional space above the garage. It has an area of nearly 40 m² and allows for the arrangement as an additional guest room, a fitness room, children’s playroom, or a home cinema.
The villa’s mansard roof lets you use the attic the way you wish. The arrangement proposed in the project includes a fitness room, a home cinema, and a bathroom with a shower. The attic space also includes additional auxiliary rooms that can serve as storage space, a server room, or space for air conditioning and ventilation systems of the building.
The catalog villa Délicate 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 charm is enhanced by the richly decorated cartouche in the middle avant-corps of the building, a crowning cornice, and classic rustic works on the corners. An additional value is represented by subtle window bands with a simple, geometric keystone, and by a minimalist dividing cornice. The latter introduces an elegant division, maintaining a unique proportion at the same time. Windows in this catalog design have Viennese muntin bars. This way, large glass surfaces are perceived as very delicate.
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 luxury home is its mansard roof, which defines its classic form. Made of high-quality, diamond-shaped, titanium zinc tile, the roof coverage increases the sense of elegance and non-commonplaceness. This type of roof has a 60-degree angle, which decreases to 10 degrees at the top. This means that essentially the entire attic space has full height and no slants. The building’s gutters are part of the upper cornice, which makes them invisible. Fall pipes, on the other hand, are hidden, contributing the high aesthetics of the facade.
The villa’s classic architecture has been refined with elements of metalwork in the form of forged balustrades of the balcony above the entrance and the French balconies next to the high windows on the first floor. The timeless shape of the building also contains forged iron sconces, which gently illuminate the facade from the garden side, adding to its charm. The representative entrance with a double-leaf door is decorated with lightly carved panels and sophisticated, aged door handles.
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 surrounded by a parterre of yew trees, which goes around a fountain. The simple bowl and basin of the overflow fountain are made of natural stone, whose color matches perfectly the warm, beige facade. Green parterres, filled with lavender and grasses appear on both sides of the main entrance. The driveway surface consist of large concrete slabs that add a modern expression to the building.
The garden lawn, interspersed with flowering shrubs, perennials, and decorative grass, allows you to enjoy the surrounding greenery throughout the year. Also, for investors who are keen on having a barbecue in the spring and summer, we offer a freestanding fireplace. It will also make cool autumn evenings warmer and more pleasurable. Near the fireplace, there is a paved area designed as a relaxation zone with comfortable, soft armchairs.
