The asymmetric, articulation and eloquent contemporary design of the Villa T luxury residence creates a feeling of movement in continuity with the sweeping views of the landscape and a detachment from a traditional housing environment. This is emphasized by the solid façade clad in stone to the north flanked by the harmonious antithesis of the southern and eastern facades that are fully glazed and open to the greenery preserving that precious idea of isolation and solitude.
The relationship with the context and the sequence of the three stacked floors relies on a sort of continuous architectural ribbon that reinterprets the flavour of this Mediterranean home, developing and bending to form rooms, the roof, and outdoor zones raised from the meadow like platforms, porticos and overhangs, balconies and terraces.
They reveal the two-storey height of the living area, with the mono-beam staircase leading to the first floor, containing a studio zone and a bedroom. The daytime area is joined to the kitchen, located in the lower volume, while the luminous living and dining area emphasizes the double height of the construction, with its large pitched roof. The master bedroom zone with bath and closet is located behind the living area. The sequence living-dining-kitchen encounters two outdoor spaces: on one side, facing the living room, a terrace at ground level connects to a recessed patio faced by the underground spaces, with two bedrooms and a den, shaded for cool comfort. The context was to create a luxury residence with architecture that stands out clearly as a complete entity without definite limits.
