Luxury residence at the Four Seasons in Orlando. A modern Tuscan approach using materials

VSHD Design, an interior architecture studio based in Dubai, carries out the project of a luxury residence inside the Four Seasons Orlando Resort. The result is a house with a contemporary style reminiscent of Tuscan farmhouses.

The challenge was to preserve some existing structural elements while maintaining the client's vision of a modern home that would be luxurious yet welcoming. The client envisaged a sort of hotel-style boutique to provide the family with privacy and comfort. To achieve this challenging balance, the Tuscan style exterior facade has been modernized

While Tuscan architecture in its purest form embraces natural and rustic elements, the abundant use of materials such as brick and wrought iron has been avoided in place of a modern interpretation. The gray bricks placed on the facade pay homage to Tuscan influences. Black frames with large French windows provide contrast to the white walls of the facade, culminating in a modern Mediterranean style.

The wooden structure is left visible inside, to which black metal details have been added to give an industrial effect. Moreover, a continuity between the interior and exterior is guaranteed thanks to the Carrara marble floor.  The first floor houses the master bedroom with direct access to the pool emphasizing the concept of an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. A small spiral staircase leads to a gym on the upper level complete with a Turkish bath.

The atmosphere and services of the wellness center extend to the 6 upper suites of the house, half of which offer private outdoor access. Each self-sufficient suite has a unique decorative style and is equipped with a mini kitchen, a small pantry and a spa-inspired bathroom.
