Taking its inspiration from the owners’ collection of glass art, this hybrid of home, private spa and art gallery explores qualities of transparency, water and light. The interior is conceived to indulge the clients’ passions, showcasing a vibrant collection of art and furniture, and establishing a private setting for health and wellness. In both its massing and its materiality, the exterior is designed to integrate with the natural landscape. Throughout, this very personal home blurs the boundaries between exterior and interior, building and nature, richness and simplicity, tradition and innovation.
