Sputnik project

The clients of this building wished for a villa in close relation to the spectacular countryside landscape. Building regulations demanded a limited footprint to reduce the impact on the landscape. In order to still realize the required program, the villa was partly sunk into the ground, with a patio providing daylight into the sunken areas. The roof warps up towards the south-western corner of the house, reaching out for a maximum amount of sunlight into the living room.
