Completely Self-Sustaining Home
The Villa Sera a master piece built by an architect, sculptor and scientist, is a dwelling that exists in continuity with nature. Great trees and rolling hills are the characteristic elements of the landscape of the hill on which the Vila Sera stands. Created to be a place for work and everyday life, far from the noisy city. However, this back to nature doesnâ€™t involve the rediscovery of architecture and bucolic tastes, avoiding contemporary reality and the burden of being modern. Instead, it operates in the present, both in terms of environmental issues, including optimization of energy source, and in finding a delicate solution to construction in a natural setting. Â Its total self-sufficiency which includes collection of rain water, the use of a heat pump, solar pump, and solar panels. The clear, almost programmatic approach avoids imitation, yet blends into the landscape.
