Villa Patio is a house with two faces: towards the exterior, the house appears
closed and impenetrable while on the inside, the villa opens up towards a beautiful garden. The garden lets southern light into the house while the rooms curve into the garden, blurring the boundary between inside and outside.

The roof above the ground floor functions as a southfacing garden. The private areas of the house are situated on the second and third floors, having both views over the lake and optimal sun conditions.
