Formafatal wrapped the boxy, 26-meter-lengthy dwelling in operable, perforated aluminum panels, which never heat up in the solar and are rust-resistant, as effectively as Shou Sugi Ban-dealt with timber. A minimalist design and style solution was also applied to the interior, which is largely open up-program to present uninterrupted sight lines of the outdoors throughout the dwelling. All-natural resources were used for the inside surfaces as properly as the furnishings, which, aside from the lounge and dining chairs, have been custom-designed for the villa.
