Villa Mavi is a private home located in Damavand, Tehran Province, Iran.
Completed in 2015, it was designed by White Cube Atelier.
Imagine having a passion for yellow, white, grey and black — wouldn’t you want this to see it every day? Apparently that’s what people from White Cube Atelier had to achieve for their clients, a large family of eight from the hasht-behesht town, Damavand- 45km far from Tehran.
The building had to be erected on a 10% steep terrain, hence why it was built as a combination of three distinct cubes — with one of them being buried into soil.
The interior exudes a minimalist vibe, with yellow contrasting from every corner. Geometric lines on the ceiling, a beautiful glass staircase and plenty of green in its “yards” make this house a true dream home for its dwellers.
