Metamorphosis

The house is built on an inclined property, facing Paros Island. The project involves modifications in an existing three-story structure purposed to accommodate two independent houses, with only the loadbearing structure realized. Modifications include the complete redesign of the interiors and facades, as well as landscaping. The project develops on three levels, including six bedrooms, and guesthouses. It is a composition of white, cubic volumes and walls, projected upon the rocky, arid hill slope, surrounded by drystone retaining walls which define courtyards according to the ground inclination and the programmatic units. Great consideration was given to detailing, in order to create a typology of distinctive solutions, consistent with the design objectives at large. Stone, metal, white plaster, and pressed cement facing are composed to create a spacious, relaxed, calm environment, celebrating the senses in a singular location on Naxos Island.
