The private holiday home 'Villa F' in Rhodes, Greece possess unique characteristics and outstanding qualities, constructed by Hornung and Jacobi Architecture. The site is located three meters above a coastal road, which is bordered by a natural stonewall. On the one hand the continuation of the found wall generates a high level of privacy, while on the other hand it relates to the given situation. The holiday home was designed for a couple. They wished a separate area for guests by integrating the shady tree population and without generating an equally visible volume. Skylights show the path up to the main living area. The generated twist focuses our sight towards the ocean, whereas the surrounding walls only serve as a frame of the context. The construction of the building above ground is planned as a prefabricated timber structure finished with white plaster, which generates an abstract link to traditional old buildings close to that site.
