Inspiration from architect:

The Villa is perched on a steep slope oriented south in the forest, and looks out over a towering view of mountain ranges.

To fulfill the functions, the ‘blank space’ should be required. The materials, requested interestingly no wood should be visible, glass, mirror and polished stainless steel reflect the light and view in the obstacle less interior.
