The architects at Saunders Architecture manage to create an interesting composition of volumes that shelter 368 m² of living area for the whole family.
Villa G colorful landscape
Outdoor space: The house is surrounded by rich natural vegetation including a lot of deciduous trees, bushes and flower gardens. This alone creates a perfect outdoor atmosphere for a family home. The landscape changes completely during the different seasons and so does the whole image of the way the building stands. In spring and summer nature blooms and paints everything in vivid colors and during winter the landscape is wrapped up in pure white and the house always looks amazing.
Exterior and structure: The building has wooden cladding that consists of three different sizes mounted vertically following a random pattern. The glazing of the facade is designed according the privacy of the areas. The bedrooms and bathroom spaces have smaller windows while the living areas are open to the landscape through floor-to-ceiling windows.
Minimalist living room interior
Villa G is built on two levels, the ground floor shelters three bedrooms and a large living room. There is a transitional space between the entrance hall and the living area where the stairway to the upper level is placed. The second floor provides another living area with a kitchen and also a huge bathroom, master bedroom and another bedroom.
Kitchen and dining area interior
Interior: This house is home to a big family and so the interior had to be designed properly. The furniture is minimal so that there is a lot of free space for the children. The dominant color inside is white. We have white walls and ceilings and a mixture of wooden flooring and grey tiling in the living areas. The spaces are made more personal and interesting thanks to colorful accents like separate pieces of furniture, wall pictures and other decoration, they create an artistic and fresh modern environment for the whole family.
