Costa Smeralda, Italy
Villa Emma is a summer retreat located in Costa Smeralda, Italy. Winner of World Architecture News Award "House of the Year" in 2019, BIG SEE Architecture Award and DNA Paris Architecture Award in 2021. The 800 square meter project by Mario Mazzer Architects blends the rigor of Stazzu, the local rural buildings, with the principles of the modern open-space house. This house is in perfect harmony with the sky and the surrounding land. Hand-cut granite stones are immersed in nature, while large windows reflect the sky.
