Silicon Valley: A $33 million villa decorated with exceptional artwork
While some homes are sold on the furnished market, others are also decorated with many incredible works of art, such as this villa in the heart of Silicon Valley.
First of all, the 743 m2 of this exceptional villa impress at first glance: the glass façade, ideally exposed in relation to the trajectory of the sun, can be seen as a first work of art as it sublimates the overall structure of the place, the current property of art enthusiast Nicole Vidalakis, daughter of the real estate developer Nick Vidalakis.
However, if the places are sublime and perfectly designed for annual or summer use, the particularity of this sale lies in the collection of renowned works, sold with this villa. Here we are talking about an Astral bench chair customised by the craftsman Thomas Moser and an ear chair Richard Schultz coated with pink powder that faces him. The "Climbing one wall" is a limited edition set of six whimsical paintings by American pop artist Donald Baechler. Two shiny aluminum mannequins - one seated, the other looking outwards that were rescued from the department store I. Magnin and Co in San Francisco, now closed, are also included in the purchase.
"I love my art, but I'm ready to give it up. I'm ready to move on to my next project, and selling gives me the opportunity to start over. I wanted a house that looked like a sculpture in which someone could live, a house that was in itself a work of art." Nicole Vidalakis.
All (very) many rooms are decorated with works of art. To build this exceptional residence, it took no less than 7 years for the Swatt studio. Miers Architects. Here, there is an artistic show on three levels, with glass walls and a view of the Golden Gate and the rooftops of San Francisco. Even the pool was designed in an artistic spirit. Like a huge painting, the residence is more of an artistic work of composition than an architectural work.
