wissh saari mois

Saari Mois (the Sarskaya Grange) is the name of an ancient estate, gifted by Peter the Great to the future empress Catherine I in 1710, on which by the time of Catherine II had been built one of Europe’s most beautiful park residences of the Baroque period – Tsarskoe Selo. Its proximity and spectacular views onto the palace park were the inspiration for the name of this unique project.

The Saari Mois rooftop villa project came about as a result of a simple request from a client to renovate two separate apartments on the top floor of a residential building.
The architect behind the project, Svetozar Andreev, proposed a left-field solution – to knock through part of the dividing walls and ceilings, thereby combining the two apartments into a single space, and to add a second floor featuring living areas and terraces on the roof of the building. As a result, a non-standard architectural solution made it possible to unlock additional space, converting two small separate apartments into a luxurious two-storey Mediterranean-style villa, with spacious terraces and panoramic windows.

Thanks to this arrangement, the project’s floorplan area has been more than doubled. A large communal area, with a living room, kitchen-dining room, and dressing rooms has been designed for the ground floor, while the private area on the same floor features a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and dressing room, as well as a nursery. The communal and private areas are linked by a wide 20 metre long gallery with a cantilever staircase to the second floor, filled with natural light from a glazed skylight. The upper level is completely given over to a large recreation area, with its own bar and kitchen, a large chillout zone featuring a two-sided fireplace to heat both the interior and exterior areas, and also a home spa-centre with a mini-pool and open terraces furnished in the style of outdoor living rooms, complete with a bar, sun-loungers and outdoor showers. The upper floor also features automatic panoramic sliding glass doors, to enable the outdoor terraces and indoor areas to be easily combined during the warmer months of the year.

A generous amount of non-standard furnishings was also employed by Svetozar Andreev for the project, including a console kitchen, along with a dining table based on the original Stealth series, which frequently feature in Andreev’s projects and boast a single support point. All of the Stealth-series furnishings are finished in Corian® artificial stone. Large central architectural feature pieces were also made from the same polished, black-brown material, into which have been integrated a spacious living area with sofas, a media centre, a fireplace and a lighting system, as well as a sleeping area with a built-in bed, storage system, adjustable lighting, and a built-in sound system. The elegant cantilever staircase in the central gallery is also made from Corian®.

The understated luxury of the solid walls polished to a mirror-like finish, along with levelled floors faced with gloss-laquered parquet, in tactile contrast to the carpeted areas with the colour and texture of a sandy beach, the stone pebbles in the bathrooms and the large amount of tropical greenery, the linear architectural lighting and large sliding glass partitions, the exclusive original furnishings, the non-standard open-plan layout and the imposing energetic architectural forms combine to create an unusual, yet at the same time easygoing and comfortable atmosphere, something which is characteristic of all of Svetozar Andreev’s villa and penthouse projects, and which makes them unique and instantly recognisable.

How about some inspiring ideas for doing just that? 

Working on decorative lighting in your dining area is a truly rewarding experience. Creating an ambiance is easy in the sense that almost anything is possible, but that’s where the challenge lies as well. You need an exact answer to the question of what exactly it is that you want to achieve through lighting, a powerful tool. Which mood, style, feeling are you about to create?

MODERN VIBES

Go for a light and minimalist lighting solution, you want to keep things free and easy. This is where clear lines and shapes play an important role. For the modern-yet-glamorous look, we offer such models as Origo Star, Halo, and Wissh among others. All of them will complement the interior in a modern style.

FUZE IT!

Fusion is an amazing approach to interior design. Here, colors and materials matter the most. Go for bold copper, brass, and crystal combinations with saturated colors and rich textures. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Our models Deep Sky, Ozero, Iceberg with colored crystals (or other modern chandeliers) take the design to another level. Check out these exemplary projects for some inspiration.

KEEP IT CLASSIC

Are you craving for a cinematic look and rich golden hues in a dining area? Then look into modern chandeliers. Here, indeed, the selection is rich, helping to achieve the desired warmth and luxurious ambiance. Our Iceberg, Atoll or Vague models will fit the bill and look fantastic. Also, you can always add additional accents to the space with wall lighting.

COASTAL LOOK

Looking for coastal freshness? Go for open spaces and windows, and complement them with some decorative lighting fixtures, keeping in mind that you need to draw all that sunlight into your interior. Our project in Dubai is a fine example of this. The contemporary chandeliers in this villa reflect the bright sunshine coming into the room throughout the day and add a warm hue in the evening.
