This house in the settlement of Kamari, on the island of Paros, was designed by architects Natasha Deliyianni and Yiorgos Spiridonos by reinterpreting cubic Cycladic architecture with a modern and minimalist twist. The house and the pool have been positioned on the plot in such a way that one can fully enjoy its amphitheatrical view on the valley, the Aegan sea and Antiparos. The design of the main terrace’s stairs is an invitation to the water as they lead to the bottom of the pool, following the natural curve of the plot. Another staircase leads to the amazing rooftop and offers a splendid panoramic view of the mountain and the sea.
The Architects were focused on expressing a pure design, with simple volumes to meet the owner’s needs. The owners are a filmmaking / art direction / music composition duo, with a shared aesthetic preoccupation and common language, so they were deeply involved with the design and execution from the project’s conception. Intimacy, cosiness, and comfort were key elements, and the bedrooms and their en-suite bathrooms are physically separated from each other for privacy. As for the living room and the kitchen, conviviality, livability and minimalism were a real obsession when conceiving the interior architecture. To decorate their interior, they curated a mix of smart mid-century pieces from emblematic designers sourced from markets, in Paris, Athens and Paros, lending a chic Mediterranean-bohemian style to the house.
