The language of the villa is extant but deftly mutated. The faceted, weatherboard-clad front is an absence rather than an aggression in its recessive black. Inside, angles and joints have been achieved through an engineer’s daring — and no doubt a builder’s agony –  and they are impeccably executed.

This daring small house has been driven by a vision shared by client and architect, driven by conviction, determination and even a tiny bit of obsession.
