What is a Villa and where is its origin?
Villa is a
very large single family home in the countryside on
a comparably bigger land than the structure itself. This type of
housing was first devised by the Romans of the upper class, which
later evolved into a farm of a small agricultural compound that over
time for its own protection was fortified and isolated. Sometimes in
antiquity, these constructions were given to the monasteries, where
they were left with complete economic and production independence.
Gradually in the Middle Ages, these constructions were transformed
into the country house of high society people. In the modern concept,
this type of construction is now understood as several types of
suburban and semi-detached houses in the countryside. To understand
its concept, which changes subtly according to the place and history
in which it is made, it is suited for people with large incomes,
businesses or used as a popular accommodation for tourists.
time of the Roman Empire, villa was meant to be a special house for
elite and with it came two types of traditional constructions:
style: which is a settlement that is temporarily. Like on vacation
and relaxation for a couple of nights. Better known as an urban farm,
which in Malaysia is to live and produce the basic necessities of the
family residing, like keeping some farm animals like chickens and
pigs or growing some crops.
style: are the most known and is the farm, agriculture or plantation
site with a house to live. This is permanently occupied and is
usually so large and with so many functions that it has employees
depending on the season of the year. These villas are characterized
by their greatness in livestock and considerable plantations local
Roman Empire, the villas became increasingly isolated, so it was
necessary to erect walls for their protection. They were transformed
into a housing with generation of sustainable products. The people
who lived there were economically independent. Over time, they were
transformed into what we now know as small towns.
are different types of villa?
time we can find different variations of these buildings according to
where they are located:
the 20th and 21st century these constructions became an annexed part
of a mansion that over time were taken as a spa or mansion resort for
people of high social class, aristocrats and business people. These
types of buildings are more popular in Europe than in any other part
of the world. At present, they are still valid and quite popular for
Europeans who wish to take a holiday in the forest or at the beach.
The first constructions of this type date dates back to 1885 and
America: It was exclusively for commissions of high class travelers.
These houses have the architecture of the time of Queen Anne of
Victoria. In modern time it is reflected what was left of that time,
but these houses are no longer isolated, they are in overcrowded
cities, like in South America, these designs were fused with the
regular urban construction that is normal to see them in entire
streets with these structures. Great examples are the streets of
Toronto and San Francisco.
America: In this continent is another story, because they usually
have the same function, although they call them differently, such as
farms or ranches. The first made in Latin America, were built by the
Portuguese and the Spaniards, thus leaving a colonial architecture in
the cities. Nowadays the cities are overpopulated and the haciendas
of the past, from the time of the conquerors, are another house,
beautifully considered as national and cultural heritage. The main
function of these dwellings in the countryside are for farming. These
can become houses to live in the wild or a second home to spend a
rest at weekends as a family.
villas: These are for example the houses and mansions of celebrities
or the houses that all destined to the rent on vacation. Especially
in tropical, Caribbean, forest and mountains.
