27th May 2020 | IN PROJECT OF THE WEEK | BY SBID ShareTweetPinterestLinkedIn Project of the Week This week’s instalment of the #SBIDinspire interior design series features a luxury interior design which reflects the elegance and exclusiveness of its location. Since the end of the 19th Century, Gardone has been one of the most exclusive places on Lake Garda. Landau + Kindelbacher, used a range of colours rich in contrast, drawing influence from traditional stimuli: the aquamarine of Lake Garda, the painted timbers of the elegant Riva boats as well as the lemon-yellow touches from the surrounding lemon orchards. The high-class furnishings and fittings and the incomparable setting beside Lake Garda, assure the attraction of the project. From everywhere on the site, one has a fantastic view of the lake. Both the architecture and the interior design have succeeded, with their individual designs for the luxury villas, in meeting the highest demands of the future owners. SBID Awards Category: Residential Design Over £1 Million Sponsored by THG Paris Practice: Landau + Kindelbacher Architekten – Innenarchitekten Project: Villa at Lake Garda Location: Brescia, Italy What was the client’s brief? The brief was to design a modern luxury Villa on this breathtaking building site at Gardone Sopra overlooking the Lake Garda catching in all those beautiful views over the landscape. The goal was to fuse interior design, architecture and landscape design into one consistent Project. What inspired the interior design of the project? The inspiration came from all the southern colors you will find around the Lake Garda, the lemon trees with their Limonaia structures and the mahogany RIVA Yachts and finally the color of the water and the sky. What was the toughest hurdle your team overcame during the project? The very short timeline and just to get the design team physically on the building site, taking the James Bond proven Gardesana route on the east bank of Lake Garda. What was your highlight of the project? The whole design team was invited to join the Grand Opening Party of the Villa and we could see that all our ideas had worked out perfectly. Why did you enter the SBID Awards? The quality of the SBID Awards is really outstanding and we think it is one of the most prestigious awards within the interior design community. Questions answered by Gerhard Landau, Managing Partner, Landau + Kindelbacher. We hope you feel inspired by this week’s luxury design!
