"This is a work at ease in nature and the outdoors. With its 50-foot-long lap pool and elegant white marble, the Atrium House is the incarnation of an enduring Mediterranean ideal."Look up everyone, this is another sign that architecture is really cooling down.....
"The house can be taken in at a glance: a continuous wall of floor-to-ceiling glass reveals a 57-foot- long wing for the living area on one side and a bedroom wing on the other. 'My strategy was to free the largest possible area for a private outdoor space with limitless height and volume,' Silvestre explains. 'I see the house and its site as a continuum.'”
