The nature of a home is an intimate place. To maintain that sense of privacy, SCHLUEB architecture does not publish design documents or images of client homes. However, Matthew Schlueb offers this imagery of his own family's residence, to provide a glimpse of the endless possibilities for a house.
As a prototype exploring innovative methods for building circular architecture, Villa Vuoto was originally designed for his family of three. Julianne and Matthew wanted their son to be raised in a house that would enhance his spatial cognition, while developing a deeper understanding of his environment.
Villa Vuoto opened his eyes and exploring mind to new experiences. Modeled on ancestors still alive within him, a balance is made between Oskar's native ties to Pittsburgh, Julianne's Italian heritage and Matthew's interest in Eastern philosophies.
