Minimalist Villa High In the Italian Alps
26th April 2017
We love this Minimalist Villa designed by Italian architect Camillo Botticini. Situated a high 2,300 feet up on a mountain pass in Lumezzane, Italy, this simple yet luxurious villa is inundated with beauty from it's surrounding natural environment.
“The landscape is characterized by a valley to the south and a frame of green mountains with peaks of dolomite rock to the north,” the architect said. “It’s close to the urban area, but at the same time far away, where the grazing sheep and the scent of mountain herbs seem to have stopped time.”
Constructed by oxidized copper and wood, this 3,875-square-foot home is very unique in it's design and shape. The living and dinning areas have large minimal window sliding panels throughout the space allowing guests to enjoy the the hills and greenery as well as the private courtyard behind. Sustainable features include a geothermal system, a heat pump and ventilated walls.
