A few months ago we discovered MASK Architects when we talked about the Oasys project, and we were immediately captivated by the way they brought greenery back into the city of Abu Dhabi and how the natural element was at the heart of their philosophy.
Now, from Abu Dhabi we fly to Sardinia, where Öznur Pınar ÇER and Danilo PETTA – the founders of MASK Architects – have imagined a luxury villa that blends into the landscape.
Forget about those ocean view villas in The OC style, Villa G01, the name of the project, seems to come straight out of the ground, as if it were a natural element, shaped by years of rain and wind.
For Villa G01, the architects used materials typical of the area and took inspiration from Jacques Couelle’s architecture, especially on the Emerald Coast, with its soft, rounded lines.
There are two main elements in the project: the central staircase starting from the living room and leading to the second floor, and the outer wall, which acts as a wall for the living room but then folds in on itself, becoming a roof that wraps around the home and on which you can climb to enjoy the view.
The off-white structure gives the illusion that it is emerging from the sand, and the swimming pool, which follows the lines of the house and stretches towards the beach, seems to want to rejoin the sea, giving the impression of a natural pool.
Villa G01 draws inspiration from the local style and combines it with modern techniques, making it the perfect place to find some peace and enjoy contact with nature.
