Villa Vals

Architects CMA and SeARCH were focusing on the question if it would be possible to conceal a house in an Alpine slope while still exploiting the wonderful views and allowing light to enter the building when planing the Villa Vals. They decided to build a central patio into the steep incline to create a large facade with considerable potential for window openings. The viewing angle from the building is slightly inclined, giving a dramatic view of the beautiful mountains on the opposite side of the narrow valley.

Here’s some pictures of my honeymoon in Ireland, which was about 3 months ago. I tried to pick the best 10 in the album, since Tumblr only lets you upload 10 photos in a single post, and I don’t want to do multiple posts. Anyways, you can look at the rest of the album here. Also, all of these were taken on my iPhone, so hopefully you weren’t expecting some Ansel Adams level stuff.
