Villa in Hamburg – based on Palladio’s Villa Rotonda, this 15×15 m squared 2 volume seeks to unite contemporary with traditional design ideas by a 3 layered facade – travertine brass and glass. The 2 story building sits on a base that consists of a car collector’s garage, wine bar, back of house and other functions.

Tearing slanted roofs will frame the views- as the day progresses one can travel through the house to find one’s adequate spot. We try as much as possible to reduce gesture here, and push away from architectural reading over to more of a ‚land art‘ intervention.
We are suggesting a series of staggered pavilions that will make the experience- it’s one of the highest projects on the hill so we will save all the rain water we can harvest in a big water tank. The curved shapes provide shade throughout the course of the day – a panoramic experience.
