The structure has been designed to naturally blend in with the ambient surroundings and offer those inside a constant visual connectivity with the lovely outdoors. The one large and flowing design of the interior showcases the ample space on offer while the rising and falling roof helps in demarcating space internally.

Designed ever so dramatically by Tierra Design the structure is placed on a podium of granite cobbled walls and uses a z-shaped pattern to ensure that every part of the four-level home gets an unabated view of the sea. The most striking and visually appealing feature of the Villa Mayavee is the way in which architects have used water to not just offer a beautiful variation but also as a reflective surface that accentuates the beauty of the estate.
Designed with a touch of elegance and timeless charm by Nelson-based studio Irving Smith Jack Architects this contemporary home stands between a refreshing pool area and a traditional farmhouse and form a lavish modern interlude.
