The Deutsche Werkstätten project team have recently added another country to their portfolio after handing over the keys of a redeveloped villa in the Czech Republic to its new owners. Deutsche Werkstätten took on the design planning and interior decoration of the four-storey property dating from the 1930s which, with its rounded facade, is highly reminiscent of the Bauhaus architecture found in Tel Aviv. We were also charged with the project management.

Within the space of ten months, an interior mapped out by the designer Tatiana Mironova took shape – a process that was not without its difficulties. For example, balconies had been earmarked for conversion into interior spaces. Even more challenging were the fire protection and structural upgrading measures. These ranged from the renewal of entire ceilings and the strengthening of foundations to the installation of dormer windows and the concealment of wiring and plumbing. The heating and air conditioning systems have been integrated into the ceilings.

When you first enter the villa, your attention is immediately drawn to the impressive living room which stretches out into the distance and combines a variety of functions: dining, socialising, reading – and games! (A French specialist company has supplied a made-to-match pool table.) On the first and second floors are the private rooms of the owners, and in the basement is a swimming pool and sauna leading out  onto a large patio area. The garage even contains a special pool for the family dog to splash around in and wash his dirty paws.

After completion of the interior space, Deutsche Werkstätten has now also been assigned work on the facade of the villa, its boundaries and the grounds.
