Buckled Country Abodes

Villa 3S by Love has a Fetching Fold for an Architectural Embrace

— June 5, 2011 — Art & Design
The original purpose of architecture was not necessarily to claim as much vertical and horizontal space as possible, but to enclose a comfortable area as a cozy shelter. Villa 3S by Love Architecture accomplishes this, while allowing the rolling landscape that surrounds it to express its own authority.

Located in Graz, Austria, this delightful whitewashed domicile is the perfect rural retreat. The contemporary single-floor bungalow features a bent facade of curtainwall windows and sliding glass doors that lead out to an exposed patio. The form of the building totally trusts the raw natural world that embraces it, offering it the respect of a simple light seat atop the grass and soil. The chalky color of Villa 3S by Love Architecture may stick out amidst its blue and green surroundings, but the charming composition steals no thunder from it on its own accord.

1. Cozy Shelter Architecture - The trend of designing architecture that prioritizes comfort and coziness over maximizing space and size, creating a retreat-like atmosphere for residents.

3. Respecting the Natural Surroundings - The trend of designing buildings that blend harmoniously with the surrounding environment, allowing nature to take center stage.
