Dall Ava Villa

The villa is situated on a hill which slopes steeply toward the Seine, the Bois de Boulogn, and the city of Paris, in the residential area Saint Cloud –a neighborhood characterized by 19th century houses in a classical “Montel” landscape.
The clients wanted a glass house with a swimming pool on the roof and two separate “apartments” – one for the parents, the other for the daughter. They also wanted a panoramic view –from the swimming pool- of the surrounding landscape and the city of Paris.
The site is like a big room, with a boundary made of greenery, garden walls and slopes. It is composed of three parts: a sloping garden, the main volume of the villa, and the street level garage with access in a cavity.
The house is conceived as a glass pavilion containing living and dining areas, with two hovering, perpendicular apartments shifted in opposite swimming pool which rest on the concrete structure encased by the glass pavilion.
