Villa

The building is situated at the hilly terrain of the Keila riverbed, about 20km west of Tallinn. The form of the house was defined by the pine forest around it, making it pursue a small footprint while extending its limbs over the slope underneath. The uniform finishing with black plaster and finite details render the artificial object to be a camouflaged part of the surrounding environment while remaining fully visible.
