Contemporary Sustainable Villa
Balancing between the water element and an obsession with yachts provide the inspiration for this Contemporary Sustainable Villa.
Wishing to express his passion for the aquatic, the homeowner requested for an elegant house hovering over water just like a sailboat.
A bioclimatic design emerged from the concept, with a highly dynamic look, yet completely ecofriendly.
Right from the photovoltaic cells and solar panels that provide electricity, to a water collection tank and a well, everything about the house is sustainable. The water collection and drainage system incorporates a distillation facility.
Instead of a regular air conditioning system, the villa takes advantage of its constant contact with water to provide a cooling sensation during summer. And when winter comes, a geothermal heating system warms up cold spaces using a coil fan.
A clean minimalistic design and décor characterizes the interior resulting in an ergonomic and luxurious environment. In addition to its natural inclination towards the abstract, impressionistic wall sculptures dominate the space, magnifying the effect.
