02 TAINAN MAKING A SPLASH
Dutch architectural company MVRDV has revealed plans for a Y-shaped villa with a swimming pool incorporated into its angular roof. The 330-square metre private residence will form part of a new residential community on the outskirts of this Taiwanese city. It is to be constructed from concrete, with large circular holes forming windows in the exterior walls. Circular openings in the ceiling will offer views of the pool overhead while bedrooms will be located on the lower levels, including a master suite, two children’s rooms and a guest space. A landscaped garden will include a small pool, lawn and planting areas.
