The house was designed by rbarkitektur and is conceived as part of the landscape climbing gently up a hilly terrain. An inner courtyard allows for privacy as well as for maximum daylight. The roof is covered with green moss, making the building integrate with the surrounding nature as the boundaries between construction and landscape dissolve.
What’s really great about this villa is not the modern and comfortable architecture, but the way in which it is adjusted to the relief around it. It is not just a building that springs in the middle of the fields, but it becomes one with the field. That is why the villa has a part of it seeming to mingle with the hill, actually hiding a part under it. That makes perfect insulation for the cold winter nights because there’s no better insulation than the protection of a hill watching your back. But the other remaining part is totally open to the sun and the villa has many large windows that make the most use of the sunlight.
It looks a bit like the Mediterranean buildings, all square and white, beautiful and comfortable. I would honestly love to live there.
