Welcome to our gallery featuring the Villa Nemes project by Giordano Hadamik Architects.
This broad, open plan home design presents a variety of materials and colors that make it truly stand out.
Built on the hills above Liguria, Italy, its vast windows overlook like Gulf of Imperia.
This 5 bedroom home is composed of two half-subterranean volumes arranged on a single floor, following the lay of the land and providing a large central entrance which leads directly into the open space living, dining, and kitchen area.
The floor to ceiling windows and glass panels allow for a fluid connection between the broad interior and the large sun deck. The expertly crafted landscape also includes an infinity edge swimming pool overlooking the valley.
The garden patio and sun shading canopies create a filter between indoors and outdoors, while the green roof helps anchor the home in its environment. It’s a fully integrated design, inside and out.
Sustainability was one of the major aims of the design, and to that end, the home was created with highly insulated walls, strategically placed skylights and windows, and the aforementioned green roof.
Beyond this, the home is equipped with renewable energy sources, including solar panels and photovoltaic cells. The solar panels provide heat for the flooring, while mechanical ventilation maintains an optimum air quality while reducing energy consumption.
Additionally, natural stone obtained via the excavation was used for the facade itself.
The interior layout is flush with high-quality timber and stone, punctuating the minimalist expanses of sleek modern design. The open plan design allows for a grand sense of flow from the broad social spaces to the private bedroom areas.
The living room area is centered on a large grey sectional, facing a natural wood feature wall that holds a variety of shelving, the entertainment devices, and a bespoke fireplace.
Turning the opposite way, we see the kitchen, absolutely flush with rustic style wood paneling from top to bottom. The large island features a built-in sink and plenty of room for casual dining.
The rich, light natural wood accents help unite the disparate elements of the broad open plan space, from cabinetry to shelving, to entire walls. This is balanced by sleek stone surfaces and colorful furniture all around.
The dining area is defined by a lengthy natural wood table with a black metal frame, surrounded by a muted rainbow of minimalist chairs. Above, a variety of differently shaped pendant lamps hangs in charcoal.
The master bedroom also holds floor to ceiling glass for a fully integrated indoor-outdoor experience. A rich wood feature wall extends into a shelf that the bed itself rests on.
The bathrooms are flush with rich wood, from paneling around the tub and mirror, to creating a small floating shelf below the white vanity.
In addition to rich natural wood, the bathroom is wrapped in grey stone bricks and boasts an all-glass walk in shower. The floating vanity is the height of modern design, with a wall mounted faucet.
Massive closet area features nearly hidden door panels, popping open to reveal a variety of shelving and drawers, with built-in lighting.
Moving outside, we can see the massive wood deck wrapping the home, with direct access through the glass doors of the living room area. The nearby pool is only feet away from the interior of the home.
Sharp overhangs provide shade and night lighting for the deck, as they ease the transition from indoors to out. With the home sunk into the landscape, the trees and surrounding foliage appear to wrap it entirely.
Along the bedroom side of the home, we can fully appreciate the rich stone facade covering the exterior. All of the stones were sourced on location during the initial excavation.
From above, we can see the green, living roof as well as the holistic integration of the house into the landscape. The deck and pool acts as an extension of the home, leaning out for views over the water.
