Wright Park Villa Interiors
A St. Petersburg entrepreneur and restaurant owner built a villa community in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright, as he was a great fan of Wright’s architectural style. The customer wanted to continue Wright’s architecture in the house interior, but he preferred to the lounge atmosphere of a respectable hotel, dark colors, unusual combinations of stone and wood to the comfortable warmth and stereotypical pictures of a “big family home”.
The Japanese architect redesigned the house, expanding the living room further outward and turning three sides of the room to a 180-degree panoramic window. The passion for cooking is reflected in the large semi-professional kitchen. The interior of the master’s office has a hint of the Japanese style: a very manly, austere room where a collection of weapons is displayed in hidden niches behind sliding panels. The garage was converted into a home cinema and a library, and the second floor is a place for bedrooms of the whole family. The master bedroom and adjoining bathroom continue the Japanese theme: the black matte tub is surrounded by wooden partitions, a homage to traditional Japanese onsens, and the geometry of the ceiling recalls the architecture of Japanese minka houses.
