villa melinda

To synchronize with the current cityscape we submerged parts of the building into the ground, which led to a much less dominant form that fits into the landscape without seeking attention. The visible parts are divided into triangular shapes that were twisted in different dimensions, such as Rubic’s snake. The irregular form of the elements results in a playful composition of spaces inside and outside of the house as well. Social functions such as the living and the dining room’s position are aligned with the biggest ceiling heights. Due to the intensive forms appearing on the house we tried to get rid of every excessive element on the facades, except for the openings. Meanwhile, the limestone finish consumes the house from head to toe, creating a homogenous cover. In the end, the enormous monolithic stones soften into shards.
