Villas in beautiful locations with intricate layouts and high quality materials stand for an upscale lifestyle and prestigious residential culture. They offer their residents "urban country homes", combining the best of urban and rural life - generously proportioned architectural designs surrounded by nature, yet close to the urban center. Residents esteem the quiet and seclusion while being directly connected to everything the city has to offer.
For architects, the planning or remodelling of a villa is an exciting challenge of finding a new and contemporary interpretation of a classic construction assignment which involves distinct solutions. This volume presents the work of renowned architects as well as exciting designs of young and upcoming firms.
