Designed by Lissoni Architettura with Tehila Shelef Architects, this villa reveals an austere design with a pronounced orthogonal geometry and at first sight appears as a pavilion floating on water. Purposely simplified, the L-shaped volumetry is inspired by modern architecture and is distinguished by walls with scaled-down openings to the outside and large windows towards the softer forms of the garden. The terrain was designed to accommodate the house, which is protected from the outside with concrete walls incorporating windows of an essential architectural design. The volumetry of the architecture is recomposed in a vision of total purity.
