The 1,500 square meter villa was built between 1927 and 1930 on a 3,000 square meter plot. With a vision to rehabilitate the building to its former glory, the villa was acquired in 2015 by Minerva Corporation, investing more than $ 20 million in its restoration. Specialists Institute of Art and Restoration Palazzo Spinelli of Italy and Stonewest of the United Kingdom, whose respective works include estates, cathedrals and other historical and cultural institutions, have been appointed to undertake a large-scale restoration of the property.
The name of Villa le Voile is inspired by veil (French for “veil”), symbolizing his vast seven-year study and restoration trip – as well as the many layers of history unveiled in the process. Composed of a main villa, a modular space for exhibitions and ephemeral events and an outdoor landscaped space, the villa will house three dining destinations punctuated by artistic spirit, cultural sensitivity and the promotion of heritage.
A place of inspiration, community and cultural exploration, Villa le Voile will offer a place of exchange and understanding of Vietnam through exhibitions, workshops and other programs throughout the year.
