Aviator’s Villa in New York

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Living

Even though we cover some of the most beautiful dwellings on Earth, it’s not too often that we encounter homes that really break the mold of traditional design. The Aviator’s Villa is just that – an outside of the box residence that is visually stunning.

Designed by the New York City-based team at Urban Office Architecture, this home is nestled on a hilly parcel right next to a lake in the Duchess County area of New York. The home was designed for a retired pilot with the objective to “explore the idea of flight as a powerful motivator for architectural darings.” A truly unique property, the villa is comprised of three primary spaces: the 30 feet tall living room and kitchen area, the 40 foot bedroom, and the library. Continuing with the aviation theme, the home is exposed to air on all sides, and benefits from plenty of natural light thanks to the floor to ceiling windows found all throughout.
