Villa F is a holiday retreat sporting ultra modern architecture. Hornung and Jacobi Architecture opted for a minimalist and calm project, keeping their eyes on sustainability and efficiency.
Lately the charming, but unpractical, concrete cantilevers are celebrated on numerous outstanding projects, and although other materials are often used and explored in buildings of all kinds, lightweight materials are still reserved for secondary elements. In Villa F’s case, the main structure of the house is made in plaster coated timber, making for a audacious move. The house is mainly spread horizontally, with a fractal-like vertical hub for the master bedroom.
Sharp angles and open spaces makes this house a study on the right balance of interior and exterior living, always showcasing the magnificent view the villa offers. Villa F is necessary and courageous project, and it wouldn’t look out of place in down-to-earth science fiction movies and editorials.
