The Villa Varoise, a retreat in the South of France by Boston firm NADAAA, is a geometric marvel. It comprises two opposed L-shaped structures nestled into a hill at different heights. The forms join, creating an abstracted rhomboid with a courtyard at the centre. One of the L-forms also cantilevers over a pathway that connects the courtyard and pool to the exterior of the home. The Villa Varoise is, in fact, a study in connectivity. It incorporates nature and complements the surroundings via pigmented concrete walls whose earthy tones juxtapose the surrounding greenery.
