The 16th edition of Maison de Campagne presents 16 selected, recently built country houses.
Vacation homes feature ever more emphatically a “new vernacular architecture”. There is no doubt, however, that the architecture produced today is quite different from the local vernacular. It may be daring, eloquent, enthralling, revealing the architects’ intention to integrate the new building into its immediate natural surroundings and into the traditional morphology at large, using different materials and different detailing.
In this publication, the selected projects are developed in different Greek islands, in the Peloponnese and in Halkidiki. Some are new buildings while others are renovations of existing structures; some embrace modernity and some emulate traditional forms. In all cases, the common denominator is the relationship they develop with the Mediterranean landscape and the blue of the sky and the sea.
