Villa Emma by Mario Mazzer Architects is a summer retreat located in Costa Smeralda, one of the most prestigious holiday spots. This house combines the conceptual rigour of a traditional Sardinian Stazzu with the client’s desire of having a warm house with valuable materials.

This house recalls the local rural buildings both in the simple rectangular shape with pitched roof and the interior distribution with bedrooms’ windows on the longest side of the house.
Villa Emma melts the modern house principles of open floor plans and connection between outdoor and indoor spaces with the warmth layers of a welcoming home.

This house plays poetically with the sky and the land. The hand-cut granite stones on the ground floor recall the typical rural buildings and plunges into the natural landscape while the large windows on the second floor reflect the sky.

Interior decor is characterized by pure lines using refined materials. Tones are mostly dark but warm, with calibrated color touches that create an elegant and cozy atmosphere.

The design of the house focused also on the environment, the building’s ecological footprints have been reduced by creating a passive house. The energy savings are achieved by using specific building components and a quality ventilation system to reach maximum level of comfort both during cold and warm months. The ventilated facade allows the natural circulation of air in the space between walls in order to improve its thermo-energy performance according to seasonal/daily needs.

Both the design process and the execution phases have been characterized by the use of technology with a creative and experimental approach, the search for maniacal precision and highly specialized craftsmanship. Since the beginning the approach to this project was the same of a craftsman who creates a piece of fine watchmaking.
