Villa Vals

Architects CMA and SeARCH were focusing on the question if it would be possible to conceal a house in an Alpine slope while still exploiting the wonderful views and allowing light to enter the building when planing the Villa Vals. They decided to build a central patio into the steep incline to create a large facade with considerable potential for window openings. The viewing angle from the building is slightly inclined, giving a dramatic view of the beautiful mountains on the opposite side of the narrow valley.

I miss walnut cove. I miss Josh and his friends who aren’t trying to impress anyone, who have better conversations than these college kids with larger than life egos, rarely humbling themselves enough to show some authenticity.
I miss home and not having to feel “boring” for just feeling laid back and preferring to chill rather than party. I’d live in the art studios and work morning till night if they had a proper bed and shower.
I just want some quiet, the comfort of my boy next to me, and the freedom to work as I please.
