Style and Balance – and Surprise – in Miami Villa Fendi

38 architecture

In 2013, Villa Fendi sold for $14 million, breaking a record for the Venetian Islands.

The sedately beautiful house was designed by rGlobe for the grandson of the founders of Fendi, the Italian fashion house.

The garden side of the house faces the ocean, here suggested by a view through to the pool.

The huge glass case above the garages has a surprising purpose. It serves as both entry (via elevator) and – in front – an occasional guest bedroom.

So it is a curiously exposed room to be a guest bedroom.

To get to the main part of the house, one steps out into the open air.

This entry leads right past a bathroom, that has a wonderful open view but lacks privacy.

Perhaps the window can be opaqued when needed?

At this height, the extended view past the guest bedroom is largely of the neighboring tree canopy.

On the ocean side, the master bedroom repeats the extension of the guest bedroom, but it cantilevers out over the garden pool.

In fact, as the plan shows, this echo is not an exact recreation, just a hint of the shape.

Although this pure glass extension is a beautiful space, knowing that it is a guest bedroom combined with an elevator stairwell from the garage below takes away some of the charm.

As does this surprisingly dreary kitchen.

For $14 million, this seems surprisingly lacking.
