Villa Escarpa by Mario Martins

Villa Escarpa is located on the bay Praia da Luz, Portugal, which is on the list of 50 best beach villas in Europe. This villa was projected by Mario Martins Atelier in the year 2012. Before starting to project the home, the architect faced some problems. The home should be located on a place where there was a home already, and should fit in the place. The place where the home is located is a steep slope, which is often exposed to wind. Surprisingly, this limits and the complex are the basic of the concept which helped the architect to create this kind of unique project. In Villa Escarpa is used big amount of glass, and different kinds of building materials, including almost 100 tons of steel and 5 miles of wire. This is a pretty complex structure, which gives an impression of one very simple and easy construction. villa-escarpa-mario-martins architectimage by http://architizer.com/
