The Modern Mediterranean Villa GM, Sicily

Designed by Italian-based design studio Architrend Architecture, Villa GM is a beautiful contemporary home in Marina di Ragusa, Sicily.

The modern house is a tribute to architect Pierre Koenig described as  one of the most brilliant architects along with American modernist Craig Ellwood. The luxury home has been inspired by contemporary American and world architecture.

This villa, like a garden pavilion hung with a spectacular view of the sea, is part of a complex of houses located in Marina di Ragusa, the seafaring village of Ragusa, on a plot of land with beautiful views overlooking the Mediterranean and a stretch of coast in the direction of the island of Malta.

The design of the villa derives from the influence exercised by the Case Study House project (CSH) implemented in the 50s by John Entenza and the magazine he founded “Art & Architecture”. The contemporary villa is more representative of the project especially in the case study house of Pierre Koenig’s Stahl House, which was beautifully shot by Julius Shulman.
