The villa was designed in two different concepts: one merging with the hillside, another floating above the ground with dynamic views overlooking the forest.

From the Architect:

“The form for the villa comes from the natural topography – a building that emerges from the landscape, while remaining partially embedded in the hillside.



The first of the villa’s components is strategically placed to merge with the sloped landscape, while a separate volume floats 22 metres above the ground, benefitting from the breathtaking views of the Barvikha forest.”
