The quiet and charming Vill could easily be translated into a two-in-one project. It’s a concept developed by Bo Design. The Vill is located in the Piacouan region of São Paulo, Brazil and it’s a very interesting structure. It was a project developed by Bo Design and it’s powered by solar energy. It was completed in September 2012.
The Vill uses prefabricated steel frames. The main idea behind this project was to create a wooden structure that could be transformed into indoor gardens. The Vill Garden is not just a structure but also a system that serves as a decoration for the house. A growing vegetation area surrounds the house and plants and provides beautiful views of the mountains. The interior garden is a green space inside and the main challenge was making it seem like a human’s haven.
The architects managed to come up with a beautiful system of vegetation designed perfectly for the Vill Garden. The interesting thing about this system is that the plants also provide shade. The green space is somewhere at the limit between indoor and outdoor. It’s somewhere in between when indoor and outdoor plants become a part of their design. It’s also somewhere in between when outdoor and indoor are closed when it comes to indoor.
The team managed to create something very interesting and unique. The result was a very pleasant greenhouse located on a mountain. The structure is organized on two levels. The ground level is a mini-ground floor and includes all the main functions that a typical home has. This also includes a small bedroom with a pull-out table and lots of storage. There’s also a second floor where all the private areas are clustered together. All the pieces have a strong industrial look and they are mixed here with a few modern pieces that feature sculptural silhouettes. The main material used for the structure is steel. The units were designed to be mounted on the exterior walls and have a flat and non-existent surface.
