Specular villa

Yurmala, Latvia

Description

An invisible house in the mirror style, broken up into separate volumes linked by bridges, seems to be “walking” along the coastal dunes of Jurmala — an original decision for the hilly patch overgrown with perennial pine trees. In order to preserve the landscape, the house is elevated to the height of about three meters — a park with terraces is “threaded through” underneath. One of the volumes with the facade facing the street is architected in the classical tradition: its sides are allotted for garages and staff rooms, the central part of the main lobby is connected to the living quarters and the swimming pool at the rooftop. So as not to mar the silhouette of the city view opening from the sea, there is a room that elevates from the house and serves as a skydeck.
