改造意大利翁布里亚圣尤雷夏古城堡,对于美国顶尖设计师马丁·劳伦斯·布拉德来说,真是累并快乐着。叶夫根尼·列别杰夫是俄罗斯的巨亨,他与父亲亚历山大·列别杰夫拥有庞大的传媒帝国,包括英国老牌报纸《独立报》和《旗帜晚报》等。当叶夫根尼发现圣尤雷夏古城堡时,它已是一片废墟,满目苍凉,却依旧风度翩然地立于翁布里亚的山上,俯瞰着阿雷佐,还能远远地眺望佛罗伦萨和托斯卡纳。叶夫根尼瞬间就被这种略带萧索的浪漫氛围虏获了,于是决定重塑古堡昔日的荣光。


圣尤雷夏古城堡占地3万平方英尺,建于12世纪,已经被遗弃多年,要想涅槃重生,实属不易。为此,叶夫根尼请自己的老朋友、同样也对意大利无比热爱的室内设计师马丁·劳伦斯·布拉德来重建和装饰城堡,以确保所有调整都与历史相符。罗马建筑师多梅里克·米尼基利也被请来还原古堡的墙体布局以及再造12世纪风格的城堡内部构造,其中包括一个迷人的小教堂。而马丁和叶夫根尼开始拜访翁布里亚和托斯卡纳的城堡及豪华宫殿,细心研究装饰细节和地域性设计。


“为了挑选与古堡历史匹配的艺术配饰,我们逛遍了全世界。不管是建筑装饰还是家具和织物,都要恢复古堡最初的模样。就好像这些东西已经陪伴家族度过了数世纪,代代相传,而不是刚刚由古董市场扫货所得一样。”马丁经过一番细致的精挑细选实现了这个目标。这些独特的装饰品有来自帕尔马古玩市场,有来自伦敦维多利亚·哈维和格尼维尔市场,也有从巴黎、纽约、洛杉矶古董市场购得的。从佛罗伦萨当地古玩店和罗马古董商人手里也淘到一些宝贝。


马丁在比利时找到十六七世纪的壁炉,石头地板是他在当地市场亲手挑选的,细致的做旧处理复古又不失现代感。根据马丁和叶夫根尼在城堡游中所收获的装饰细节,当地的手工艺人设计并制作了古堡的雕花镶板和壁橱,铁艺也是严格按照17世纪翁布里亚风格,请当地一位艺术家手工锻造的。因为某些单品找起来实在费劲,马丁还操刀设计了一些家具。他参考了一些顶级的古家具样本,通过艺术手法让它们混迹在真正的古家具和配饰之中。


新增的游泳池隐于绵延起伏的群山间,建筑师还设计了一间健身房和土耳其浴室。由此,浑厚宏伟的古堡再次风姿卓然。就像马丁所说的,“如若不是叶夫根尼先生对翁布里亚爱得深沉,这项工程不可能完成。”

 

 

 


The Castelo Santa Eurasia was a labor of love for Martyn Lawrence Bullard. His client Evgeny Lebedev, a prominent Russian business man who along with his father oligarch, Alexander Lebedev owns and runs a media empire including the Evening Standard and Independent newspapers. Evgeny found the castle in complete ruins, romantically positioned on a hill in Umbria overlooking the city of Arezzo and across the Umbrian hills to Florence and Tuscany.


Lebedev fell in love with the romantic notion of restoring this beautiful and historic 12th Century site and restoring all of its 30,000 sq feet to its former glory. To aid in the task he employed his long-time friend and fellow lover of all things Italian, the interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, to design the décor of the castle and help in its restoration – ensuring all adjustments were historically correct – along with Rome based architect Domenico Minichilli. Domenico helped define the original walls and layout of the castle and was instrumental in the rebuild to resemble the original 12th Century structure, including that of a charming small chapel, while Martyn and Evgeny toured Umbrian and Tuscan castles and palazzos to study original details and regional designs.


“We shopped all over the world to find the correct period art, architectural fragments, furnishings and fabrics to give the castle an original feeling. It had to feel like generations of the same family had lived there for centuries and collected all the beautiful objects, passing them from generation to generation, rather than a sweep of shopping trips around dusty antique stores!” This was achieved by Martyn’s careful and edited choices from shopping in distinctive places like the Parma antiques fairs, dealers like Victoria Harvey and Guinevere in London, auction houses in Paris, New York and Los Angeles along with selections from the local antique shops in Florence and reputable dealers in Rome.


For the 16th and 17th Century fireplaces Martyn shopped in Belgium, finding original Italian pieces indigenous to the region. The stone floors were hand selected from local quarries and carefully aged while the boiserie and cabinetry were lovingly designed and made by local craftsmen according to original details found by Martyn and Evgeny during their castle tours. Even the iron work was carefully reproduced according to 17th century Umbrian designs and hand forged by a local artist to complete the restoration and retain an authentic sense of age. Martyn reproduced whatever furnishings proved too difficult to find, using the finest original examples as a guide and artfully mixing them with original pieces and period accessories.


With the addition of a swimming pool hidden in the rolling hills and a gym and Hamam designed by the architect, presence and grandeur has once again returned to this regal Umbrian estate, and more importantly, as Martyn says, “it is a true testament to Evgeny’s passion and love of Umbria.”
