An award-winning villa, one of the TASCHEN 100 Contemporary Houses, that lies between two slopes, bridging them by two long stonewalls.
Located on the Greek island of Antiparos, it offers fabulous sunrise and sunset views.
4 courtyards are carved inside the villa, organizing the interiors around them: The house has 4 bedrooms plus staff quarters, a cute home office with a daybed and a spacious playroom. An open space living room and kitchen leads to the outdoor dining area and the pool.
This amazing one of a kind architectural gem offers amazing vistas, relaxing outdoor and indoor spaces, ample room for you, your guests as well as for staff, a 12x4,5m pool and a vegetable garden.
Instead of designing a residence, the architects redesigned the landscape so that it can be inhabited. The main tool in this process is the transfer of earth and the formation of a new topography which incorporates the volumes of the residential area while protecting it from the wind.
The house's site is a natural saddle where two slopes meet. In the north-south axis the slope rises between two hills while in the east-west axis the slope drops, opening to sea views. Two long stone walls bridge the hills allowing the house to nestle in the space within and then allowing earth and landscape to flow over it. This strategy blurs the edges of the house making its mass imperceptible within the broader skyline of the island.
This stone bridge acquires a basic rural quality and the presence of the house is revealed only by the four courtyards carved inside of it. The courtyards are the organizing elements of the house as they segregate the living spaces into five interior areas; this arrangement resembles the “five” side of a dice.
In this way the house becomes both protected from the elements yet full of natural light, with generous views and a compact but rich relationship to its topography.
