MVRDV have designed a Y-shaped house with a rooftop pool for Taiwan
The Dutch architectural bureau MVRDV has designed an original Y-shaped country house with a rooftop pool for Taiwan.
Land area of 330 square meters. meters located in a picturesque area between the sea and the city of Tainan, 40 minutes from the last.
In the building intended for one family, the master bedroom, two children’s rooms, a guest bedroom, an open-plan kitchen and a swimming pool in the “Y” recess, fitted with changing rooms and a sunbathing area.
The bedrooms are located on the four-story base of the letter "Y", the common room and the dining room are in its upper part, under the pool.
The rooms at the top are located on a “partially floating platform, where the seats form part of an inclined wall into which the bookcase is also embedded”.
Large round windows refresh the concrete building of the building, fill the rooms with sunlight and open the view of the pools in the courtyard of the building and above.
The villa is surrounded by a garden and rocky paths, the location and orientation of which are based on the principles of feng shui.
Vinny Maas, one of the founders of MVRDV, comments on the architect’s plan: “Due to the maximum narrowing of the lower part of the building, it was possible to create a large garden and a good view from the upper floor. And in the center of this aspiring house, the rooms are moved apart, leaving room for a pool overlooking the sea. ”
