NAME: Villa PP
LOCATION & YEAR: 61 Garam, Mongolia - 2015
TYPE: Architectural Design, single family house
DESCRIPTION: The villa is located on the gentle slope of a hill, forty kilometers out of Ulaanbaatar. A simple monolithic block, covered with natural stone, slightly breaks following the curves of the ground and faces south to earn the maximum natural lighting particularly during the long cold winter. As a consequence all the rooms have big glazed doors and are distribute in-line and connected by a long corridor to the north. The massive chimney is the landmark element that makes the house recognizable from far away and it connects both the living room fire-place and the one at the terrace. Some decorative elements refer to the local culture.
