A philosophy of life…
The architectural spirit
« SAKURA TIMELESS » has the privilege of being on the edge of a protected natural area, facing the mountains, above Geneva, in co-visibility with Mont Blanc and Mont Salève, on land facing due south, with a very steep slope. The existing vegetation is lush is very diversified, a set of cherry trees served as the starting point for the SAKURA TIMELESS idea, the symbol of Japanese aestheticism. The proposed architecture will be based on a Japanese atmosphere, calming and aesthetically very meticulous; the architectural will was to built a villa with a very high environmental quality and a significant integration to the site. All views are dominant, not overlooked, bay windows offer a perfect continuity between the interior and exterior by the extension of the living spaces. The "Japanese- inspired" atmosphere is embodied both by the vegetation proposed as well as by the local grey
stone, reminding Japanese schists, and by the climate compatible with the referred species.
The natural green spaces, as well as those landscaped, cover more than 68% of the plots involved. The lanscape is omnipresent, the architecture is elegant by its dominant integration. The exceptional quality of the place , its geographical position, its viewpoints and its natural environment lead to a project that must blend into the landscape, and enable"to see without being seen". The entire is treated with the highest meticulousness of finishing details, both interior and exterior, with an architecture always very consciencious, luminous, landscaped and ecological.
