Gorgeous entwinement between contemporary minimalism and traditional craftsmanship. Inspired by its majestic natural surrounding and dramatic barren landscape of the Greek island of Kea the house that searches for unity and harmony with nature is presenting us with its strong, secure core and impressive stone structures.
The creators from Cometa Architects had entwined the eclectic magic of craftsmanship, organic materials and expressive shapes with contemporary architecture, ingenious engineering, and stylish purity. Three stone volumes dig into the rock slope on which the house is situated, alternating colors, dark and white stones and giving cozy, snug expression of the home: like the mountain had embraced it in its protective bosom. Combining modern minimalism of expression with traditional charm the designers created a luminous ambiance with an organic feel.
The house interior greets with very artistic and expressive combination composing the staircase- infinite whiteness and simplicity is framed by artistic fishing rope installation. The same organic material and unique design touch make yet another appearance outside-the rope crocheted work is composing the shadow and sun play through the veranda’s wooden pergola. The living room premises are also characteristic, inviting and with unique design custom made built-in benches surround the fireplace. Countryside design elements like the low, wooden coffee table traditional for the oriental heritage of the region – adorn and complete the design composition.
The simple, minimal furnishing, some of which is built into the whitewashed interior structure is also a typical for the hot climate home decor composition. Elevated above the living room premise, stands the kitchen zone with its warm wooden furniture, some of which an impressive example of craftsmanship, and the trendy yet tradition inspired brass elements that compose the sink and the lamp’s design. Throughout the house, organic materials, linen textiles and luminous white finishes compose and ambiance that is inviting, expressive and unique. Photo by Dimitris Kleanthis
