Open to grand views on three sides, “Villa for an Aviator” comprises raised and stacked vertical volumes that mimic the motion of an ascending plane. Rather than keep a plane’s streamlined form, Urban Office Architecture reconstructs the aeronautical components into angular and twisted geometry, reminiscent of a Libeskind design, to maximize views and simulate the motion of a plane steering through air currents.

The house is made up of three primary spaces, starting with an open plan living and kitchen area with airy, 30 foot tall ceilings. From there, the stairs wind up to a private office, bathrooms, and a cantilevered 40 foot bedroom surrounded by angular glazed windows that are shielded with perforated screens. A library is accessible via a set of stairs that lead down from the cantilevered bedroom to a rectangular volume elevated on stilts.
