Surrounded by vegetable garden and orchard together with the circular dry stone wall, the house provides tranquility and calm private use of the vacation house, but, and also easily transformed into a series of gathering spots for a large number of people.

The house is characterized by a large triangular structure terrace-deck which connects three completely different contents: a massive, rustic cellar; a spacious glazed living room intended for the family; and a big pool with an indispensable view of the sea.

Inspiration from architect:

This heterogeneous spatial composition, seen within the context of organization of the new house and a plethora of possibilities of its use, creates unexpected places of strong impressions and different experiences.

Such a heterogeneous and spatially diverse program resulted in a house which assembles, blends, and compresses three different ambiances.
