VILLA HUNAN LU
Private villa in Shanghai
Hunan Lu Villa is an exclusive residence located in the French Concession area of Shanghai, which Vudafieri-Saverino Partners has reinterpreted defining an unheard of balance between oriental evocation and western nuances. The project represents a perfect combination between two distinctive traditions - Chinese and western - and of the long history of their relationships: inside antique artefacts, works of art and Chinese ritual spaces coexist in perfect harmony with western “desirable objects”. It is precisely for these characteristics that Hunan Lu Villa has recently been awarded the prize of best project in the Private Housing category at the Archmarathon Awards 2018.
The architecture of the façade has been defined after a careful analysis of the materials used in the old Shanghai of the 1920: the mix of pale yellow marmorino, river pebbles and grey stone create a perfect harmonious balance, enhancing the elegance of the building.
The interior architecture continues the analysis of the past and propose a timeless environment: the elegant wooden ribbon of the main staircase, the marbles of the floorings, the colors of the walls, the wooden/brass libraries and the ceiling decorations define a cozy and welcoming space, where the client easily located her furniture selection.
