Despite this constant interaction with volcanic elements it is hard to find a home that is as unique and yet unassumingly ‘effective’ as the designed by FLOAT Architectural Research and Design.
It is the completely enclosed unit in wood and Polycarbonate sheathing that contains the more private areas of the house and offers a modest living environment. Dubbed ‘Mauka’ this unit sits on concrete piers and it is from the bedroom that one can enjoy amazing views of nature outside along with a peek at the lava flow.
On the inside the color palette is largely neutral and simple with minimalism holding sway. Covered decks on the outside with spectacular roof structures the contemporary swimming pools and tennis courts complete a home that is spectacular and visually striking.
Once inside one is engulfed by wood and the cozy environment is still minimal and nature-centric. It is the outdoor pavilion called ‘Makai’ that feels much more liberating as a carefully hidden outdoor kitchen on the deck sitting area and outdoor shower create a serene environment.
Finding unique spatial solutions helps in creating a more comfortable living environment for homeowners looking to efficiently combine form and function. in Poland is one such modern residence where a one and half story structure has been arranged into two units perpendicular to one another in order to delineate public and private spaces.
It is also a visitor’s paradise with luxurious hotels and villas spread all over this enchanting coastline. It is in this idyllic setting that one discovers the gorgeous and stunning designed by MIA Design Studio. A series of 40 villas spread across the coastline today we take a look at one of the four types of villas that are a part of this exclusive project.
