DXV - Daxing Villa

The Daxing Villa is a 300m2 new residence that is organized around a series of internal gardens and narrow courtyards that afford a rich variety of internal views. The villa instigates a contrast between elements that are at once heavy and light, using concrete, wood, stone, and nature as the primary building materials. The design accommodates multiple generations living under the same roof, takes advantage of south light, and is engineered to withstand a M9.0 earthquake.
