Lambda - Residential Villa


Lambda is a weightless building whose only structure would be the exoskeleton, a space frame containing the house itself. Two triangles cantilever off one another ─ one champfered at the rear to add to the aerodynamic quality ─ with the whole structure seemingly balanced on a single point. The fact that the largely glazed walls of the house are set well back from the exoskeleton adds to the impression of this delicately poised composition of triangular forms. Generous eaves, along with the canopies, provide privacy and sun protection. Designed by Massimo Mercurio
