This vegetation-covered Mediterranean villa offers beautiful views of the Italian landscape surrounding it.

The villa is tucked away in the mountains, sea and valleys that surround it and was designed to "reduce visual impact and optimize the thermal insulation of the building." The luxurious vegetation-covered villa is up to Passivhaus standards due to its use of solar and renewable energy and the fact that it was built in a way that optimized insulation. Aside from its energy-efficient construction, this villa mixes modern design concepts with rustic elements that make it an excellent piece of architecture.

Maintaining Passivhaus standards in the home is a difficult feat and this luxurious villa managed to do so by taking advantage of what the natural world has to offer.
