Modern, luxury and elegant. Those are the words which perfectly describe this incredible concrete and glass house.
Looking for art, uniqueness, class coupled with spirited high taste for quality interior, city villa is the house to visit. This building has a modern taste with rectangular forms placed at positions normal to cantilever concrete elements, dazzled with glass, thereby generating beautiful statuettes.
Concrete and glass house called City villa is ARRCC’s most recent design. As an architectural company, they believe in unique crafting of captivating interiors. Working closely with their clients, they transform their briefs to exceed original expectations. They believe in life-enhancing spaces that reflect both client and location, and through their refined approach to design, have developed a style focused on detail and substance.
When concrete and glass define the house
Located on a steep site with city views, the city villa is generally a design that incorporates concrete with a glass house, creating a powerful sculptured building. The magnificent villa has an organic shaped pool which brings out a sharp contrast of beauty against the rigid shape of the building, bringing out magnanimous views. Inspired by architect Tadao Ando, is the use of geometric forms to sculpt natural light, which is seen throughout the house. Surrounded by the infinity pool and Jacuzzi is a beautiful garden, and a sunken entertainment area. Also, there is a floating concrete box that provides a neat overhang for shade protection, while incorporating a sky light to sculpt the natural light.
Interior design perfection
As expected from ARRCC, the interior is out of this world, the city villa accommodates three double bedrooms as well as a master bedroom, all with en-suite bathrooms enclosed within a glass box, providing privacy at the same time keeping the view intact. The entrance cube is enclosed by a custom-designed, fragmented brass front door which floats framelessly between glass panels on either side. The ground floor has a Bulthaup kitchen inspired by the golden rule of craftsmanship, a dining area and a formal lounge area with sliding pocket doors, an informal lounge, a bar, study and fully equipped gym. The floor finish is absolutely astonishing, with a dynamic highlight of indoor-outdoor feel. The monochromatic palette of the rooms is offset against the imported Esperreso Italian wardrobes within each, adding a perfect layer of trivialized richness.
One of the very highlights of this modern house, apart from the fine concrete finish and the beautiful glass touches, is the dramatic city views seen from almost anywhere in the building, its ecstatic.
