Villa Marittima by Robin Williams

Villa Marittima lives up to it’s stunning photos when viewed in real life. A masterpiece of minimal living, Villa Marittima was designed by architect Robin Williams, who wanted his project to be about light, outlook and space. Set on the beach in St Andrews on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, the house is more like an artwork with surprising choices of materials, concealed cupboards and doors. Not surprisingly, Villa Marittima has taken out a host of awards including a National Architecture Award for Residential Architecture, a finalist in the World Architecture Awards and SPASA pool of the year.

Villa Marittima challenges the “norms” as great works must. This villa is about poetry, discipline and commitment. It’s also almost impossible to describe, as it is alluring, reflective, abstract and particular. It is at one moment a garage, a shed, a reflection pool, a mesmerizing abstract painting, a framed “James Turrell-like” light-scape, a clever articulate interpretation of the Building Code of Australia and, quite simply, “a joy to live in.”

A bizarre and joyful experiment in living within an art piece, Villa Marittima is unique. It celebrates the possibility of architecture as art.
