Built on an inclined plot in the southern coastline of Tinos island, that offers expansive views towards the Aegean sea and the nearby Cyclades, the house was designed to accommodate a family of foreigners and their guests during their summer vacation.
Conceived as a dense cluster of volumes, the house adapts to the terrain, mixing white plastered surfaces with masonry walls and wooden pergolas. This collection of materials produces a textural and aesthetic complexity and grounds the house into the rugged landscape visually minimizing the construction.
Indoor and outdoor spaces connect through expansive openings and share a common aesthetic vocabulary. Bespoke design details are implemented throughout the house employing an array of natural materials that refer to the island vernacular. A modest approach in landscape design blends the boundaries between human intervention and the surrounding natural landscape.
