The home is a contemporary take on a European garden villa, creating an effortless connection between the pool terrace and interior living spaces. In the elegant dining and kitchen, there is a Poliform Home Hotel round table and leather and elm Ventura dining chairs. 

In the sitting room, a single statement Mad armchair, soft and luxurious, designed by Marcel Wanders. The strength of the building’s form, its materiality – thick, masonry walls – and its repeating elements, like the patio’s series of expansive doors and the front façade’s massive grid-like windows, are all typical of Conrad Architects’ aesthetic. Here they have the effect of instilling a quiet permanence into the new build. 

“Poliform furniture, soft linen drapes and plush loop pile carpets complete the home’s refined yet eminently comfortable lustre. The interior palette is a calmly emotive counterpoint, to the angular austerity of the house’s armature,” said Conrad Architects.

Left: Sophie-Lite stool: An evolution of the Sophie stool with shaped backrest chair, that makes it more lightweight. The finishing touches remain the same with solid wood frame and fabric or leather upholstered seat, as is also the case with the generous, comfortable structure. Right Mad Queen Armchair: A continuous body, an enveloping seat, and an image strongly characterised by a matelassè finishing: Mad Queen plays on exclusive artisan details to add to the collection that began with Mad Chair in 2013.
Above: Ventura dining chair. Born from the collaboration between Jean-Marie Massaud and Poliform, the Ventura dining chair  is the quintessential partner for dining. Enveloping, fluid and sensual shapes are combined with upholstered comfort and refinement.
