Villa Papillon

Villa Papillon rethinks the relationship between art, architecture and landscape. Designed for a Lebanese art collector and his family, the house is comprised of a series of rooms organized around an open-air courtyard.

Daylighting Design: Shade in Summer & Sun in Winter

Louvered steel and aluminum trellises continue the folded form of the green roof over parts of the courtyard, strategically designed to provide shade in the summer, while letting sun in during the winter months.

Werner Sobek provided the daylighting design services for this beautiful project.
