These new town villas are harmoniously integrated in the existing, informal building structure. The elongated site, with direct access to the English Garden, enables the buildings to be positioned optimally as far as nature is concerned while preserving sufficient privacy towards the adjacent buildings. Thus the greenness of the park can flow throughout the construction. A continuous esplanade, designed as a private path, leads from the garden gate to the park and also serves as a entrance to the villas. The orientation of the buildings to different points of the compass and the well-planned open space design using special plants and water areas offers a maximum of privacy despite close physical proximity.
The cube-shaped buildings, in Modernist style, have a sculptural character with openings matched in proportion and detail. The resulting generous, modern ambience is reflected in the loft-type interiors: the well-planned support structure enables flowing room sequences interrupted only by occasional load-bearing elements. Light-drenched rooms, floor-to-ceiling glazing with generously-sized windows opening on to nature while maintaining privacy are the central themes of the design.
