villa gallery
‘I wanted this house to be absorbed by the sky, to ground it, and provide a more modern Provençal identity.’ For this renovation, India Mahdavi coated the façade with silver paint, allowing it to glisten as an olive leaf under the sun. The Villa was stretched into the landscape in order to anchor it on a space overlooking the park. The cement Bisazza tiles, designed by India Mahdavi, and the punctuation of the space with arches magnifies the graphical strength of the villa. ‘I like mixing simple materials to more luxurious ones, it gives a certain depth to objects, and a strong personality!’
