Height Limitations set by the development this villa is built meant that it could only be one story high seen from the road. The plot of land is 628 m², located on a steep hill side. We choose to partly build the villa into the hillside for aesthetics reasons and to reduce the construction costs. The soil is cooler than the air and keeps the room temperatures down. Access is from the upper floor plan. On the lower floor plan are bedrooms and storage. The Layout and use of glass provides for unobstructed sea views from all interior living areas.
