Geneva Villa

Swiss jewel

Located in the superb city of Geneva, this futuristic and modern home designed by architecture studio JM Architecture is architecture with sober shapes and finishes yet all the while with a strong stylistic personality. Extending over two levels, the villa features an exceptionally minimalist and geometric flavour, in which the two main spaces, one white and the other black, interact in a skilful interplay of spaces and colours. The interplay of filled and empty spaces is further emphasized by the use of large windows which serve to balance the project perfectly, and at the same time create a delightful contrast with the surrounding environment. The lighting was designed to enhance and make the splendid architectural details stand out. The team of Interni professionals entered this delicate project with great expertise. With its customary professionalism and ability, it has managed once again to exalt, with exquisite furnishings chosen in collaboration with the JM architecture studio, all the surrounding architecture by combining pieces from the finest made in Italy brands with icons of international design.

Welcoming minimalism

Having passed the front door, framed by a pair of Outdoor Overscale flames by B&B Italia, we find ourselves in the presence of contemporary minimalism at its finest: neutral colours, with blacks and whites prevailing, which interact beautifully with the warmth that the beautiful oak plank flooring is able to convey. You do not have the feeling of detachment typical of minimalist style, but rather a harmonious relationship between materials and furnishings that simply make you feel at home.

In the entrance we find an iconic Knoll Womb Armchair accompanied by a low Lithos table by B&B Italia with a Calacatta Gold marble top which emphasize how international and Italian design interact, bestowing harmony and elegance to the settings in which they have been inserted. Continuing onward, you are immersed in the heart of the house: a large open space used as a living area featuring large windows that follow in succession for its entire length giving access to the garden. In this setting there is a spacious living room and an elegant dining room, separated from the kitchen solely by a partition that allows free access from both sides. What this home conveys is a sense of extreme lightness, made possible both by the great brightness of the rooms that are never entirely separated as well as the elegance and sophistication of the materials and furnishings that were chosen.

The heart of the house

As mentioned previously, the living area proves to be the true beating heart of the home. The main activities inside every home take place here and it is always here that, owing to the wide open spaces, carrying out these activities takes on a completely different meaning. The Interni team was well aware of this and acted accordingly by working on these large spaces, enhancing them with the finest furnishings that call for breathing space all around them.

On the left part of the open space we find the dining room dominated by a beautiful Manta table by Rimadesio with a wonderful Black Oak top accompanied by Poliform Grace chairs covered with Ardesia leather which, if possible, only enhance the feeling of elegance. The lighting here, as in the rest of the house, is imperceptible but at the same time very present owing to recessed spotlights and cascades of light that wash the walls making everything appear even brighter. The dining room is surrounded by shelves and containers that disappear from sight owing to the use of a total white finish that allows them to blend in with the walls.

We find an impressive and sophisticated living room on the other side, preceded by a splendid grand piano. The undeniable showpiece is the Bristol sofa by Poliform in dark grey fabric which steals the scene owing to the considerable size of its composition. Beside it are two PK20 leather armchairs by Fritz Hansen with their timeless charm, flanked by two small Lithos tables by B&B Italia; a pair of Poliform coffee-tables instead have been positioned in front: an exquisite rectangular Tribeca table with an Opaque Petit Granit Stone top and a Mondrian round table with a Black Elm top. To complete the living room, a pair of Mirto ottomans once more by B&B Italia, a Self model low console by Rimadesio which serves as the base for an iconic and classic Taccia by Flos. All the furnishings chosen for the living room feature dark shades which contrast intensely with the light carpet serving as a backdrop and with the oak floor. A choice which, only after careful and scrupulous observation, echoes an interplay of contrasts between the white and black hues throughout the project.

Peace of mind

While all of the ground floor is devoted to the living area, the first floor is entirely dedicated to the sleeping area, the study and guest rooms. It is accessed by the main stairs located immediately after the entrance area. As soon as you reach the upper floor you come across a small area for relaxation consisting of an Embrace Lounge Chair by Carl Hansen with its classic appeal and a bright Atoll sofa by B&B Italiain light grey fabric; we find another low Mondrian table by Poliformbetween the armchair and sofa.

A very long wall houses all the guest rooms and the majestic master bedroom where the view of the outdoor spaces is the perfect frame for one-of-a-kind settings. What one feels within these spaces is absolute peace and tranquillity, harmony between tone and materials that continue in succession as far as the eye can see. It is precisely here that the skill and sensitivity of Interni professionals emerge, adapting to the architectural project yet all the while enhancing it to the utmost through the competent and attentive choice of furnishings, the result of years of experience acquired in the field of interior design.
