Villa Belvedere in Cuneo, Italy by Marco Acerbis Studio
May 12th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal
Located in one of the most beautiful northern Italian landscapes, Villa Belvedere literally conveys the astonishing surroundings in one simple yet animated object. Its lightness reminds of the wings of a plane and the way it plays with light and shadows enhances what at first sight might appear as an elementary geometry. It is not. The whole house, located on one single floor and covered by one big statement roof is articulated to create an architectural experience of constantly changing views, lights and colours while walking through internal gardens, huge living spaces, a sixty meter long and top lit corridor, independent spacious private rooms and a secret hidden garden with plunge pool.
The access to the garden is from the main living space passing underneath the balcony and literally going through the building. The villa is constructed with white fair face finish concrete.
