Overlooking the Atlantic Seaboard in Bantry Bay,Horizon Villa boasts the perfect balance between luxury and comfort.
The brief called for a dynamic response to capitalise on the site, by creating an environment where the young family could enjoy an outdoor lifestyle, protected from the prevailing winds whilst still enjoying the views of the ocean. The clients were eager to utilise every possible area of the site yet ensure that they maintained privacy in this dense part of Bantry Bay.
The design was primarily driven by the need to create a family home, which accommodated the kitchen, living room and dining room in one single space. The secondary living area was to be a dramatic entertainment space, located on the level immediately below the family level – where the clients could entertain large groups of friends.
The pool terrace allows for covered and uncovered areas to relax around the pool. The entertainment lounge accommodates a generous bar situated adjacent to the outdoor braai area. A dramatic gazebo structure is perched at the Western edge of the pool deck allowing the owners to enjoy unrivalled ocean views day or night.
两个起居层位于住宅垂直布局的中心，位于第四和第五层。 ARRCC 总监 Mark Rielly 说：“主要的双层居住层是一个动态和雕塑的组成，包括体块、楼层、元素和平面的相互作用。”它与广阔的海景直接相关，由明亮的红色矩形烟囱和Nero Marquina大理石墙构成。餐厅面向花园庭院，带有水景和雕塑。几级台阶通向位于主卧室书房正下方的玻璃酒窖，可以俯瞰整个空间体量。
The two living levels are located centrally in the vertical arrangement of the house on the fourth and fifth floor. “The main double volume living level is a dynamic and sculptural composition comprising the interplay of volumes, floor levels, elements and planes,” says ARRCC Director Mark Rielly. It relates directly to the expansive sea view and is framed by the bright red rectangular chimney flue and a Nero Marquina marble clad wall. The dining space opens out onto a garden courtyard with a water feature and sculpture. A few steps lead down to the glass fronted wine cellar placed directly under the main bedroom’s study which overlooks this entire spatial volume.
A glass lift connects the building vertically, and an external service stair connects the levels externally. The main bedroom and two children’s en-suite bedrooms are located of the sixth floor of the home, boasting 180-degree views of the ocean.
The interior finishes are rich and varied, including timber cladding, and richly coloured mosaic accents. Textured stone cladding adorns the internal and external walls and is contrasted against the roughness of the off-shutter concrete soffit in the living room, dining room and kitchen. The finishes are rich and varied in numerous areas in the house, including timber cladding, and richly coloured mosaic finishes.
内饰并没有过度设计，而是毫不费力地休闲和时尚。 每件家具都经过仔细考虑，成功地将 20 世纪的标志性设计作品与 ARRCC 低调的定制物品完美融合。
The interiors are not over designed, but effortlessly casual and sleek. Each furniture piece was carefully considered to create a successful fusion of 20th Century iconic design pieces with understated customized items by ARRCC.
客户不拘一格的艺术收藏在室内起着不可或缺的作用，并为当代建筑增添了动态背景。 包括胡桃木、木炭亚麻和大地色调在内的中性色调与复古皮革和柔软编织地毯等纹理元素并置。 “我们的目标是创造一个舒适的家庭住宅，整洁而实用，同时作为戏剧性建筑围护结构的衬托，”ARRCC总监Mark Rielly说。
The client’s eclectic art collection plays an integral part in the interior and adds a dynamic background to the contemporary architecture. A neutral colour palette which includes walnut timber, charcoal linen and earth tones was juxtaposed with textural elements such as vintage leathers and soft woven carpets. “Our brief was to create a comfortable family home, uncluttered and functional, yet at the same time act as a foil to the dramatic architectural envelope,” says ARRCC director Mark Rielly.
