The villa floats like a raft

The high-end floating villa aims to conserve natural resources with minimal human interference. It is built with a balloon frame—wood is used as the main material punctuated by steel for a lightweight but solid structure. The colours of the villa were chosen to mimic freshwater fish. Inside, the concept alludes to the interiors of a submarine where the space is mixed with organic and mechanic elements, such as the entrance halls that look like a submarine door. The space flows continuously, both internally and externally, on interconnected plane platforms that make the villa float like a raft.

 The exterior form was inspired by a male and a female fish swimming together in the dam with two polygon volumes built in different sizes and tones according to the nature of the fish—males are generally smaller and brighter while females are larger and darker.
