Introducing the fantastic brand new cement house built on the island of Kea, Greece, with three courtyards around existing oak trees, designed by Athens-based architects Marina Stassinopoulos and Konstantios Daskalakis.
“The characteristic features of the site and the island’s traditional building practices, though without a historicist attitude, are the recognisable project elements: the maintainence of the existing flora, the restructuring of the site’s terracing and the organization of the house with volumes which are either independent or ‘arise’ as intermediate gaps. The building is placed on a terrace. The entrance to the house is found in the void between the volume of the house and the terrace behind it. The house is constructed with the usual practices of the local builders. Without a decorative intent most surfaces (floors, external walls, internal wet areas) are formed by cement”, stated the architects.
