The idea of volcanoes, more so living near a (once) volcano spot, has never been pleasant until now. These five villas, nicely positioned to provide wide views of the Hebil Bay, are built with the inspiration from volcanic elements.

Bright colored pool lights this house up as the skies begin to dim.

All aspects of this project celebrate the nature of volcanoes. The building’s “fluid” architecture provides private spaces without having a sense of too much isolation. The shape of crystallized lava is also used to design windows, walls and the building itself. The lighting will also give you a sense of being surrounded with flowing red hot lava.
