Villa Hush Hush, location unknown by Marks Barfield
[FIRST LOOK] London-based practice Marks Barfield has designed this £10 million ‘elevating’ house for an undisclosed site in the south of England
Two of the four separate ‘zones’ of the Villa Hush Hush can rise 40m in the air at 10cm a second.
According to the practice: ‘Specifically created for sensitive sites and affording sensational views, Villa Hush-Hush is designed as a spectacular new home concept that can disappear into a landscape, but at the touch of a button be lifted above the treetops to provide wonderful panoramic views.
‘Engineers Atelier One designed the lifting mechanism which pushes a support column up out of the ground raising the moving element of the villa from its lowered position to the required height.’
