White Canvas 

JM Architecture 

 

A single-story villa floating in the lush landscape, in a dynamic play of pure lines and nature, sunlight and reflections, indoor and outdoor spaces.  A white canvas upon which tree shadows project lively figures from sunrise to sunset and a graceful lawn that gently moderates the rolling terrain.  An immaculate container strategically carved to allow sky view from every indoor space and a gentle breeze through the public areas in the warmer months.

 

A skylight marks the division of the living and dining areas, both placed in a single large volume that opens completely to the outdoors via sliding glass panels that vanish into the side walls. The result is a vast open-air living area articulated with decks, a reflecting pool, an outdoor conversation pit and a tree perforating the space. An eat-in kitchen connects through an outdoor patio with a family room with library and home theatre.
