We were quite lucky, because the weather was nice (you have to plan the visit several weeks in advance) and the garden was blooming. There was also installation of self-playing piano in the garden (set of strings connected to piano that acts as an amplifier - operated by wind or by set of little motors). Enough with exteriors, let's move to interior... There's plenty original pieces of furniture designed specifically for this villa (some is still in production today!), but the best stuff is yet to come:
The house has 3 revolutionary elements (considered 1930s)
1) partially translucent onyx wall (to see and fully enjoy its effect, visit the villa before sunset)
2) two huge sliding windows (works similar to automobile window, but weights a few tonnes), thus you can enjoy fresh air in the living room and so on
3) ultra-modern air-conditioning system that distributes fresh air (or warm air or various mixtures of both) inside the building with possibility to add scents of flowers or wood.
Well, no wonder it is UNESCO world heritage site.
