Client brief for this project:
The client’s brief was to have a weekend home away from the city. The interiors should preferably reflect as much of the landscape and greenery around and yet provide a comfortable and maintenance free space as the site is in a remote location.
Inspiration behind the design:
The main inspiration behind the design of the villa was the natural sharply defined contours of the landscape. This afforded the play of double height volumes, the conversation between the upper and lower levels and lastly the landscape which is integral to the villa architecture. For example, the walkway which leads you to the main entrance from the parking lot (on the upper level), the natural rocky contour of the landscape entering the lower deck which is seen while descending down the floating wooden staircase.
