A Holiday Villa with Views of the Mediterranean Sea
View Slideshow

Built for a family looking for a holiday home, the Cool Blue Villa is a sanctuary by the Mediterranean Sea that offers the residents privacy from the street. Once inside the unassuming wall and facade, the design, by 123DV, opens up to an outdoor oasis complete with a glass-walled pool.

The owner longed for a house by the sea which lead to a concept designed around the idea of water. Featured prominently in the center of the outdoor area is the pool, which has a transparent corner. To the side of the pool, there’s a channel of water that runs along the the side of the living room.
