Marble House looks more like an art piece than a residential structure. This is mission accomplished for the architects whose main design idea is to successfully integrate interior design, landscape, and architecture in one piece – and that they did.
The house closely resembles a sculpture. The white marble cladding flows seamless in and out of the house, allowing for harmony in design and unity in aesthetics.
The square-shaped house has an open courtyard carved right into its center. This allows natural sunlight to come in while providing better ventilation.
The marble tiles give the interiors a bright, airy feel. They work perfectly when combined with accents of contrasting materials in neutral palettes.
The pool adds both aesthetics and increased natural ventilation by creating cool breezes as air passes over the surface.
From the Architect:
The initial idea is to allow habitant’s behavior to carve a dwelling space into a monolithic piece of marble sculpture. The main piece appears so solid, yet so light it floats to defy the gravity, while external landscape space flows underneath through the center courtyard.
Residual marble pieces fell onto the ground to become part of the landscape features, isolated, yet visually related so boldly, as they use to be part of the marble boulder.
