The Japanese Shell Villa.

Shell House Villa is located in the Karuizawa region of Kitasaku, Nagano, Japan. Designed by architecture firm ARTechnic, the concrete villa with a large oval shell shaped structure is built in the middle of the forest.  The structure appears to float above the ground like a spacecraft, with trees growing around it, harmonizing the villa into the landscape.

This 329 square meter (3,541 sq. ft.) house has a central control system that enables all mechanical and electrical equipments to be managed by three buttons. A custom made floor-heating system minimizes the use of heat energy.  Check out the blueprints up top, and more photos of this fantastical villa down below.

A-Cero’s Villa.

Spanish architectural firm A -Cero designed a dwelling of generous proportions, developed over a single storey to facilitate the indoor-outdoor connection.  Surrounded by meadows, tree groves, chestnut, pine and oak trees and wildlife represented by stags, wild boar and roe deer, the edifice establishes a recognised link with the traditional architecture and vernacular customs.  Stone, tile, wood have been used in its construction.  The sense of the architecture is to formalise the space and layout of the rooms besides representing a clear tribute to rural villages. the consequence is an open, u-shaped dwelling with a large central courtyard that shares out the uses. the principal wing houses the living rooms, dining room, tv room and children’s and playrooms.  In the east wing is the kitchen, laundry room and cellar and in the west wing the master bedroom.  Semi-independent pavilions house the installations, riding facilities, stables and the guardians’ dwelling.  Two immense awnings frame the landscape.  Through an apt play of symmetries visual perspectives are created.  A painstaking study of the light allows it to come in through courtyards, grooves, windows, skylights and façade openings.  The courtyards help minimise the conditions of the extreme climate, provide colour, freshness and hold the ponds that reflect the serenity and musicality of the water.

The Villa Amanzi.

I’m always looking for fly homes to stay in on vacation (if I ever took one), but the Villa Amanzi is one of the most stunning spots I’ve come across in recent memory.  The home seems to grow out from the rock, and is open, airy and very elemental.  This composition defines the open living and dining space that is simply a transition between two garden areas.  Amanzi is located in Cape Sol on the West coast of Phuket.  It’s intimate but open and the uninterrupted clear span creates a bridge under which the conventions defining indoor space disappear.  Cantilevered over a massage sala, the swimming pool completes the composition. The designers say “It is the focal point that draws the eye to the view and instills a calmness that provides balance with the energy of the architecture.”  The residence (8,600 sq ft) offers six bedroom residence with a 15m infinity pool and breathtaking views over the Andaman Sea. It is designed as an exclusive private villa, ideal for families or groups of friends to escape together in stylish surroundings.  All in all the house seems like perfect place to spend a nice relaxing week with a Csilla Ray look alike, and forget about the stresses of my work life.
