Chalet Faber is a large-scale and beautiful project that your team worked on for more than a year. It included numerous steps, from initial architectural design to a comprehensive interior and architectural solutions for the implementation of the project.
The land plot where the villa is going to be built holds great value for the owners, and its natural environment was considered as a top priority during the design process
The general guidelines for the villa included a 3-level structure, with a basement, a ground and a first floor, where the majority of the panoramic glazing should be facing the deer park across the fence.
The initially planned area of the «fitness studio» is a dedicated second-level space for aerial arts and various gymnastic activities. It was important for the studio’s ceilings to be at least 7 meters tall and be strong enough to support a system of blocks and levers, necessary for practicing the sport.
The basement, along with a standard set of technical rooms and storage areas, is also expected to include a dedicated wine cellar and an armory that doubles as a shelter. The primary focus of the interior design are open spaces, tall ceilings and tall windows, allowing plenty of natural light and views to penetrate from the outside. The decoration materials of the interior are expected to create a calm, soothing atmosphere, rich in natural textures and colors. The owners’ collection of contemporary art is deemed to be one of the major influences to the internal design and the layout of the halls, living spaces and the bedrooms, primarily — the master bedroom.
The halls, also referred to as emporios, ought to have a double functionality as localized gallery spaces for the art pieces. In terms of the art exhibition, the Crouching Angel statue is to be a centerpiece of the local collection, with a quote «Sorrow surrenders its crown to a throne called grace» by A. Smit placed on the wall nearby.
