Extraordinary House, London
A modern villa in the English countryside
Nearby London, a private residence of extraordinary dimensions it is surrounded by the green of the English countryside. In keeping with the” Green Belt”, the British urban growth control program, the architecture blends harmoniously with the landscape thanks to the low height of the volumes and the presence of large glass surfaces.
“We chose to live surrounded by nature, but without giving up the advantages of the city: the cultural ferment and social life of London are essential to our idea of well-being.”
