For a long time, wealthy people were respected due to sophisticated and luxurious style of villa decoration. Some cases can be called "trench and inhuman", but latest winds are blowing from opposite direction, and more and more villas with sea views go further and further down road of minimalism. What is beauty of a minimalist style?

This 3-storey villa is located in Sydney Harbour. The main body is a concrete structure surrounded by lush seaside gardens, buildings, cliffs, pools, terraces and boathouses forming an Eden-like collection.
The roof of building is a garden in form of a platform. After a corridor connecting a number of additional bedrooms, it leads to a living and dining room with a panoramic balcony. Floor-to-ceiling full-screen windows and clear glass railings give room a view of harbor landscape at a glance.
A staircase with a gentle slope to garden leads from living room on ground floor to living area on lower floor. The choice of interior materials is dominated by concrete, white walls and brass. There is a terrace outside living room where you can enjoy unbeatable sea views.
The private pool under terrace is connected to a wide outdoor sports field.
The interior of villa is surrounded by a private garden with stepped landscaping. The owner climbs stairs to interior of property and looks through floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows, showing changing effect step by step.
The villa is located in Karpathos, Greece, where a concrete building harmoniously coexists between clear Mediterranean Sea and bizarre stone cliffs.
A completed residential building is like a clean concrete box suspended above a rock, full of poetry and symbiosis with nature.
The designer uses natural light and shadow to present harmonious beauty of concrete building's irregularities with a transparent look and great texture.
The most unique feature of whole building is frame view. Framed decorations are a widely used composition method in classical Chinese gardens.
It is used in every room of villa. Frame and scene are connected without distinction, like a natural painting.
As people's aesthetics are constantly improving, exposed concrete will be used in more public decorations in future. The minimalist design style and unusual artistic texture have great potential.
