Todd Saunders Villa AT House
Villa AT House is Platinum Design Award winner in 2018 - 2019 Architecture, Building and Structure Design Award Category.
Villa AT House

Villa AT is located on a high vantage point, with an L-shaped floor plan pivots around a long curved glass façade, offering cinematic views of the landscape. The house stands in contrast to these boxy, conventional forms with a curving façade that uses wood in a fluid, contemporary way. Thin timber slats gently curve around the façade to create strong but soft forms. From a distance, the Villa AT has a serene, minimal appearance, but up close the rough texture of timber slats become apparent.

Todd Saunders

Saunders Architecture was founded by Todd Saunders in 1998. The Canadian architect has lived and worked in the Norwegian town of Bergen since 1996. Saunders’ studio has completed residential and cultural projects across Norway, in addition to working in ten countries around the world. Saunders Architecture brings an experimental approach to materials and building systems that fuses with a traditional, craft-led approach, often exploring vernacular forms and methods. Their extensive experience working within landscapes demonstrates the studio’s understanding of the importance of place, from wild protected environments to a more traditional suburban location.
