The Freundorf Villa by Project AO1 is a modern home painted all in white. Built in Judenau, Austria, the angular home oversees an expansive tree-lined yard and garden. While the steel and concrete reinforcements are rather industrial, the partial limestone base naturalizes the overall appearance. The glass walls, the front-facing terrace, and the outdoor pool encourage the residents to admire and interact with the environment. For rainy days, there are appealing attractions inside as well, as the first floor houses a spa with a jacuzzi.
