Villa Vincenat

  • A monastic stone wall structure establishes a temporal frame of reference for mapping its physical environment
  • The fortress organization around a long reflecting pool enhances the relationship of the indoor and outdoor spaces (mirror)
  • Complex layering of the architecture and landscape materials
  • Natural stone and brazilian walnut (IPE)
  • Combinations of "old" and "new" in an extravagant way
  • The contradiction & merging of a modern traditional «new Istrian villa»
  • The exploitation of the sun for lighting effects throughout the architecture
  • At any time of day the goal was to create an architectural masterpiece that will respect the «genius loci», but still be extravagant enough to show the highest level of contemporary, comfort, hedonism and most importantly the philosophy and character of the owners creation of something new
