milan-based jm architecture has recently completed the ‘jesolo lido pool villa’ in venice, italy. the project was constructed in only six months thanks to the prefab wood structure that makes up the stark white home. sustainability is at the forefront of the design, so much so that the construct incurs almost no energy costs throughout the year and its wildly different seasons. the entire perimeter of the structure is wrapped in 31 cm of insulation while windows and curtain walls are filled with argon gas establishing incredible r-values. the rooftop photovoltaic panels are capable of producing 10 kw, enough to power the interior/exterior led lighting scheme and the radiant floor heating. the main living area is encased in glass panels facing east and west. on the west, a paved patio contains inserted planters and an olive tree along the swimming pool which spans the entire length of the footprint. a staircase leads to the underground mechanical and storage rooms. a 4 meter overhang assures plenty of shade in the afternoon and covers an outdoor seating area. on the east side, another smaller paved patio mirrors the olive tree on the west. for ease of maintenance, the majority of the exterior is hardscaped, with vegetation that requires little attention.  the bedrooms along the longer axis of the L-shaped footprint each look out over the pool, at the same time serving as a backdrop on which reflections and shadows are cast.
