From the architect. Situated in the island of Syros I (plan view left), this summer house hosts a family and their guests. The design process was defined by the clients’ desire to maximize the view of the Plagia bay.
The main intention was to unify the various spaces of the house under one roof facing the Aegean, without creating a massive volume, thus resulting in a deconstructed rectangle with massive openings from all sides. In a similar way Syros II (plan view right) uses the same technique in terms of built volume accommodating itself however gently into the steep and intense topography of the site.
