The villa is in its own park on a hill for an art collector. The entrance area is a Piazzetta that is open to Steinwegstrasse. A high-tech smart home built with fine natural materials, it is a combination of exposed concrete, stone travertine and wood. The aim is a sustainable implementation of the materials and details, but also sustainable architecture that will not appear old – fashioned in 20 or 50 years. In the 6 m high room there is space for the small but very beautiful picture collection that belongs to the family. The living area opens with large -format sliding doors – minimal windows – to the roofed terrace, which can be closed on all sides by screens and forms a transitional space to the garden. A distant view of the landscape, transitions from the inside to the outside, the purism of the detailing and the staging of the art objects are central themes in this representative house. The real luxury here is the space. And: exposed concrete doesn’t just have to be brutal, it can also have a certain elegance.
