Villa Cala Volpe

A sculptural villa lies on the peninsula of Abbiadori, overlooking the magnificent Cala Volpe in one of the
most beautiful panoramas of Sardinia.

This exceptional work, designed by Fabio Mazzeo, stands out for its visionary character and the way it weaves an interplay of continuous references to emphasize the links between the building and its natural setting. This project is architecture with a tailor’s precision: design takes place on all scales down to the tiniest detail to shape a unique style. The home’s fluid volumes look as though they were sculpted by the wind, following the contours of the land in a fascinating interaction with the natural setting. The 1300-square-meter building unfolds over three levels in a harmonious symbiosis with the 5000 square meters of the terraced garden and the panoramic infinity pool. The unifying theme of the design is travertine, which completely covers the villa and continues inside with a variation on the theme with a luxurious palette of travertines: Navona, Noce, Sabbiato, Bocciardato, and Lucidato. 

The palette of fine marble brings movement and light to the structure, along with full-height windows that capture ever-changing views. The surrounding landscape permeates the design, from the lounges to the guest and master bedrooms and the kitchen. The effect is almost overwhelming, offering
ever-changing views where light and greenery become integral to the architecture. This intense dialogue with Nature reaches its climax in the relaxation areas of the garden and swimming pool and on the terrace roof.
