INDAGO HOUSE

Indago is part of the cliffs. As the rock strives to envelope it, the house opens to the horizon inhaling sea aura and sunset tones.

A. Kontodimas Architects-INDAGO HOUSE

Nesting into a rocky outcrop on a rugged coastline of Tinos island, Indago House offers extraordinary sea view, blending numerous Greek islands with the sunset. Considering contour density of the mountain, house follows cliffs shape, enjoying South West orientation.

The main house, arranged in two angled wings in white plaster, separated yet connected by a central whitewashed stone volume, follows the cliffs shape. Made of stone, a sheltered terrace adjucent to the house and a small guest house at the hill top are perfectly incorporated into the landscape, minimizing the scale of intervention.

Interiors,closely connected with outdoor living areas, open up towards the infinity pool and sun decks that rest at the edge of the cliff projecting into the big blue.

There was a particular approach on materials, since owners love simplicity and natural Greek style ambience. The house takes form through raw materials. Flag stone paving, wooden frames in natural color, concrete ceilings with timber imprints, wooden pergolas with wicker sticks cover have been used on house dressing to engage with natural background. The kitchen is built in white cement screed frames and wooden cabinets are giving a local yet modern look.

Pairing humble traditional materiality with contemporary details, Indago house blends nicely with the cycladic landscape and offers a laid-back living experience in sync with nature and local character.
