The Jesolo Lido Pool Villa is the first of a development for 9 single-family residences in the beach town of Jesolo Lido, Italy. The villa is a custom designed prefabricated wood structure, and it was built and furnished in only 6 months. Energy-saving high standards have been applied to the shell to guarantee maximum comfort and almost zero costs throughout the four seasons. The building features wood structures as a flexible and anti-seismic system which also avoids thermal bridges. The 31 cm of perimeter insulation, argon-gas insulated glass facades, 10 kw of photovoltaic panels installed on the roof and the interior / exterior led light fixtures co-operate in making a technologically contemporary building. Because of the small dimensions of the plot, the design goal has been directed in leaving as much open space as possible. The indoor living area has transparent sides which opens towards two different-sized patios. The largest one features a long swimming pool, which takes the entire length of the space, and two planted square inserts. An olive tree is the main three-dimensional element in the patio and it’s placed next to the staircase which leads to the underground level, where the storage and technical rooms are located.

Completed in 2011, Aamer designed this house in Singapore to curve like a boomerang so that all the bedrooms could have views of the waterfront. The geometry also allowed a twenty-five meter lap pool to be incorporated on one side at the ground level. This lap pool continues as a water feature that wraps around the living and dining spaces. Aamer also designed the main spaces of the first story to be fluid and continuous so that, upon entry, one could see the waterfront straightaway. The connection to the waterfront is further reinforced by a linear timber deck that extends from the house into the pier. The clients also felt that such a spatial articulation gives the house a sense of spacious and makes it appear to be much bigger than many other rectilinear houses on similar plots at Cove Grove, Sentosa.
This beautiful project was completed back in 2006 by Brazilian architects Guilherme Torres for a Brazilian family. The whole concept was based on 4 cubes, creating a beautiful volume, and the use of natural and warm textures and materials that would constitute a beautiful part of the area where the house is situated.
Materials the architects focused on were stone and wood, and that’s what gave the house the charm it has.
Another minimalistic marvel, this time a project from 2008 by Gus Wüstemann Architects in Zurich, Switzerland. I don’t think I have come across a project so fully making use of the lovely scenery. The cantilever and overlapping planes are softened by the water features within and surrounding the house, plus the fact that there are chocolate factories in switzerland that can be found within minutes from the house just makes things even better.
