In this instance, a design task which we did not find particularly inspiring emerged before us: Investor, an entrepreneur from Germany, wanted a villa for vacation purposes identical to villa Amelie in Vodnjan, which he had seen finished. He insisted on this and we could not convince him that things could be done differently, because house design should always conform to the surroundings, the terrain, the culture, the sides of the world, and above all, to the owner. People are often fearful that we will not have enough ideas, so they tend to cling to what they can see.
The property is situated virtually along the beachfront and the little harbour in Volme near Banjole. Shime Babin launched himself into redesigning an existing design plan. The design plan was adjusted for the slope of the terrain, and villa Uwe was thus created. The villa's exterior features certain inconsistencies and departures from the design plan, which is a shame. The design of the interiors was not done by us and we were not pleasantly surprised by how it was carried out. Pity!
