Country estate, complete with house, grounds, and subsidiary buildings. The term particularly applies to the suburban summer residences of the ancient Romans and their later Italian imitators. Roman villas frequently were asymmetrical in plan and built with elaborate terracing on hillsides; they had long colonnades, towers, gardens with reflecting pools and fountains, and extensive reservoirs. In Britain the term has come to mean a small detached or semidetached suburban home. We consider villa every larger house built in artistic way, specially with a nice view on the sea, mountains, river etc.
People construct houses as dwelling-spaces for human habitation. Such dwellings generally feature enclosing walls, a roof and one or more floors. This overall structure provides shelter against precipitation, wind, heat, cold and intruders. We consider a house – every building that is not villa nor stone house nor large building with many apartments nor commercial building.
- STONE HOUSE
We consider a stone house – building that is built of stone as the main building material. Very important is that a stone house is built in old local architecture that is characteristic for Adriatica.
An apartment is a self-contained housing unit that occupies only part of a building. We consider an apartment – mainly smaller unit in a building that is built mostly for renting to tourists. It is usualy not larger than 80m2.
We consider a suite (or flat in Britain and most other Commonwealth countries) a self-contained housing unit that occupies only part of a building – that is built mostly for residential purposes. It can be rather small, but also larger than 100m2 or even larger than 200m2.
- COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES
Under commercial building we are considering buildings for corporate or retail use. These buildings are more functional in use, and they may use any type of architectural design to accomplish its purpose. Here belong – offices, hotels, restaurants, shops, business stores, caffe bars etc…
- BUILDING PLOT
We consider building plot – a piece of land that has a building permit – usualy issued by the authority that has juridiction in that area – which is typically the municipality. Typically – it is not large piece of land, not larger than 4000m2.
We consider land every other piece of land than building plot. It has not a building permit – but can probably by the time become a building zone.
