This house has two main structures and it is also designed with lifted elements. These elements can create an illusion as if the house is floating in the middle of the forest around the site and also create a covered outside space. This covered outside space can be used as an additional place for relaxing and entertaining.

The interior of Villa S is soft, warm, and calm. Some natural colors dominate this interior that comes from the wall, furniture, and the house wall. The kitchen and dining area are located in one large area, surrounded by elegant windows to allow the awesome view comes inside. The floor is designed and made with wooden materials, creating a warmer atmosphere to the entire area.
