From the architect. Villa forms an harmonious whole together with the flowing surrounding landscape and takes into consideration the location, dimensions and proportions of the existent edifices.

The house is designed to be as transparent and airy as possible, allowing views to the surrounding nature from all around the house, but also through the house, transforming the villa into part of the natural environment. Villa Nord is situated under the limestone cliff and in order not to make the roof dominant in the surroundings, it is designed as a carefree green roof.

Architexts just want to be famuos... Thats why it's ref... and even with the "green roof"...

internautas · October 10, 2009 03:16 AM

not ref, but red...

d9me · October 09, 2009

With that red alu cladding, It reminds me of B. Tschumi's folies, and never ever would I make that choice in this setting. Otherwise its an interesting, and readable piece of architecture.

I think the house has some interesting aspects, like the way it seems to grow from the path leading to it, how it deals with the topography and, to some extent, how the interior spaces and the openings redflect this. But then it seems to have some contradictions - does it want to blend with the surroundings like the roof suggests or does it want to contrast with it like it seems to? Also it seems to be a fashionable product, following ephemeral tendencies in terms of form and image. I suppose it will look awkward and dated in 10 years time...

"in order not to make the roof dominant in the surroundings, it is designed as a carefree green roof."

So, how 'bout those RED walls? Contradiction.

Andrew Geber · October 09, 2009

Bo · October 09, 2009

i think its realy dangerous for psychological health of owner.
