Villa UH1 is as much landscape as it is building. It slowly climbs up the gentle slope of the plot and blends into one with the setting.

The house is organised around an inner courtyard that faces the evening sun and creates private and undisturbed outdoor spaces while maximising daylight influx.

The green roof gradually blurs the distinction between building and landscape.
