Through its spatial organization and materiality, the traditional yet contemporary house creates a visual and tactile continuity between landscape and architecture to preserve the beauty of its context. Both monochrome and vibrant, the transforming Villa RA shifts in hue throughout the day in response to sun and land, revealing movement through shadows and ever changing material nuances.
