Villa White

Moscow, Russia

Description

The comfortable and cozy White villa is one house in another, it belongs to the architect Alexander Glickman himself. The concept of the building is a harmonious synthesis of architectural volumes of Italian palace and modernist residence with a staircase to the roof, reminiscent of the architectural monument Villa Malaparte.

We can see authentic beauty of Andrea Palladio classical heritage originally interpreted by Alexander Glickman in the part of the facade with pilasters, columns and glazed arch of White villa. His ideas of classicism and canons of XVI century Italian palazzo ironically applied in the interior - columns with archways leading to the stairs and columns with background of the modernist glass walls.

Dining room is a well-lit high space with coffered ceiling, a chandelier by Barovier & Toso, Pozzoli classic furniture and a fireplace decorated with the second floor arcade gallery of the Palace of the Doges in Venice, skillfully done in miniature. The modern kitchen "island" is supported by the ancient sculptures of griffins. The complete "smart house" system is installed in the villa, it rules heating, electricity and other utilities.
