Villa K

Villa K is a spectacular residence located in Thuringia, Germany. Designed by Paul de Ruiter Architects, the 248-square-meter ultramodern mountain villa offers amazing valley views with a minimal environment footprint. Visitors enter the house on the north-facing slope side, that features a six-car garage, mechanical rooms, pantry, and hunting rooms. The living room and bedrooms face south and are clad in floor-to-ceiling glazing that open the home up to stunning valley views. The house is framed by a U-shaped terrace, and is interrupted by a mind-blowing infinity pool that intersects the terrace and house between the living and bedroom areas. In fact, it seems to flow through the house into the slope.

The chairís back and seat are wooden, and the clear acrylic legs are specially painted by craftsmen so that the wood grain appears to gradually fade away. Very clever...
