Philip Johnson said: "Architecture is the art of how to waste space." Having that in mind, architects from 123DV, a Rotterdam-based architecture firm, designed incredible modern villa called Villa Dali. This amazing home is built in the Hague, Netherlands.

Home is where the art is

Capturing the character of Dalí, Jugendstil forms, Spanish facades and nautical life in one villa.

"The 'Villa Dalí' clients asked for a very personal house which would reflect their passions. They are nautical minded and have a love of art, sculptures and especially the work of Salvador Dalí. During the initial design discussions 123DV architecture were also showed pictures of ancient Spanish architecture. They were fascinated by the closed white stucco facades and metal fences in Jugendstil design. So the challenge was to combine in one villa the beautiful Jugendstil forms, the closed facades, the treasures of the diving world and the unique works of the artist Dalí.

For the design of the house 123DV made use of the Paranoiac-critical method by Salvador Dalí (creating optical illusions). The result is a cylindrical white stucco main building with a nautilus spiral structure inside; representing the world of diving. The closed facade facing the street represents the so called Spanish architecture with a blown up 'Jugendstil' pattern in the six meter wooden panel as the entrance. In the centre of the house there is a double story cylindrical space. The furniture has also been custom designed. Traces of Dalí’s fluid watch art can be found in their design."
