The Firenze Villa Showhouse reflects an elegant and sophisticated lifestyle
The client, a man who travels around the world, has discovered various high quality cultures from different countries, which has inspired him to have the palazzo in a brilliant bronze colour. While Art and furnishing goods are in modern style, the palazzo has an atmosphere of classical elegance, which provides high hospitality to relax the client tired from long travel.
The premium life which is reminiscent of such scenery of a story exists here. The firm aimed to provide the same rich and luxury experience as you would expect from a prestigious hotel for residents in their everyday lives. This rich existence, worthy to display works of "Ecole de Paris" and the decoration of family crest like patterns displayed in different areas of the palazzo creates a space where residents can feel relaxed and comfortable to occupy. On the other hand, contemporary art is celebrated in the living space, which stimulates and inspires the residents. These two different elements may be irreconcilable however compose a graceful "harmony" in this bronze-themed space which is reminiscent of a Jewellery box dazzling in a brilliant bronze colour.
By taking advantage of natural light in the lighting plan, the firm can have less large lighting devices. Thus the spatial perspective is virtually produced and then the elegant atmosphere fills up the space by the brilliance of crests reflecting the natural sunlight.
These two different styles married, this palazzo provides the comfort and the vitality to the resident thus "the Superior Premium Life" is realized here. It is worth to be called as new standard of the residence.
