LINEAR HOUSE

Built in an oblong seafront property, the house nests into the lush landscape with its distinctive layout unfolding under a linear cantilever roof.

A. Kontodimas Architects-LINEAR HOUSE

The linearity of the roof plane dictates the arrangement of uses in succesive order, granting all spaces, shared or private, uninterrupted views of the nearby seafront. The building is developed in two levels and benefits from the inclined terrain in a way that leaves visible only the ground floor, containing both the common areas and the private spaces of the owners, while the guest rooms are placed in a lower level undercutting the slope.

The imposing canopy, extending through the length of the house, offers the necessary protection from the southwestern sun, while its linearity contributes to the building’s integration into the scale of the surrounding landscape. Big sliding glass screens merge indoors and outdoors adding transparency to the building volume, while streamlined details define the interiors.

The swimming pool, aligned to the canopy, acts as the central point of the shared outdoor spaces. with a submerged sitting area, designed as its extension. A discreet roof terrace settled on top of the canopy offers excellent views of the sea and the night sky.
