VB House is a compact and bright villa, offering many points of view, with the ability to open without revealing itself. Composed of a solid block of stone that covers and protects the most intimate and private areas of the house. This solid stone block, on the other hand, opens into the living areas of the house and is articulated with new volumes to create spaces related to the outside by attracting the light inside. In the villa all the spaces are visually interconnected in a spatial and visual continuum.
