Villa RA by MORQ
Alexander Zaxarov
Jan 30, 2020

Expansive openings punctuate the earth-toned facade of this home designed by architecture practice MORQ, which is on a hillside in southern Italy.

Through its spatial organization and materiality, the traditional yet contemporary house creates a visual and tactile continuity between landscape and architecture to preserve the beauty of its context. Both monochrome and vibrant, the transforming Villa RA shifts in hue throughout the day in response to sun and land, revealing movement through shadows and ever changing material nuances.
