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.
