Text description provided by the architects. Villa Lumi (lumi = snow) is bordered from three sides by streets. The incoherent suburban environment doesn't provide any interesting views or starting points for the architecture. This is why the building turns around a courtyard.

Floor Plan

The noise of traffic is blocked with a glazed pool wing. Terrace courtyard, opening towards the evening sun from the west, is a place of several activities for the family living in the villa.

Inside the restricted palette of materials and colours, together with the high open living room, create a restful atmosphere. A special delicacy of the villa is the asymmetric cast-in-situ concrete stair in the entrance, highlighted with the roof window.
