Conceived by LA architect Jeffrey Mills in 1997, the structure was a response to the surrounding environment, including light and landscape, as well as the clients' refined aesthetic as art collectors. Today, when many contemporary architectural designs prioritize large white boxes and overlook the importance of gardens and landscapes, this property stands out for its ability to retain and masterfully integrate the raw beauty of nature. Architecture Verdure is a term coined to describe a specific architectural style that blends modernist and contemporary principles with a strong integration of nature. The house designed in this style incorporates elements of both modern architecture and the surrounding natural environment to create a unique aesthetic experience. The design features panoramic glass, which allows for expansive views of the surrounding nature, while solid wood beams with textures reminiscent of tree bark add a tactile and organic feel to the space. Every area of the house is designed to connect dynamically with its surroundings, creating a sculptural experience. In addition to the use of natural materials, the house celebrates the art of human engineering through exposed hardware and steel elements. The plaster work in organic tones seamlessly merges with the landscape, further enhancing the connection between the built environment and nature. It signifies the style's emphasis on integrating nature's textures and resonance as core elements of the design, while still adhering to modernist and contemporary architectural principles. The concept of bridging the indoors and outdoors has been a recurring theme in modernist architecture since its inception in the mid-twentieth century. Influenced by iconic homes such as Rudolph Schindler's Kings Road House, Villa Verdure draws on the legacy of modernism while bringing it into a contemporary world that seeks a deeper connection with nature. The style takes inspiration from various sources, including the Japanese practice of "forest bathing," which emphasizes the healing and restorative power of immersing oneself in nature. Recent research on the positive effects of birdsong on the human brain and consciousness also informs the design approach. The aim is to create spaces that enhance human experiences, promote health, and stimulate growth and creativity. In summary, Architecture Verdure represents an architectural style that crafts a deep connection with nature while expressing the relevance of contemporary culture and spatial aesthetics. It seamlessly integrates natural elements, materials, and textures into the design, resulting in a total aesthetic experience where nature meets culture at every crafted moment.
