Here's some more from the Oliaros:


OLIAROS launched its first project Antiparos Design Properties (ADP) in 2004, with 7 bespoke houses in 100,000 m2 of land, designed by young architects, successfully introducing the concept of high end, low density housing on the island of Antiparos in the Cyclades.

Antiparos is a small fisherman’s island located in the centre of the Cycladic complex of Islands in the Aegean Sea.

Located next to the Island of Paros, Antiparos offers the privacy and character of a small island and benefits from the services and amenities of its larger neighbour.

    Andreas Fuhrimann /Gabrielle Hachler Architects are great!!!!! I have been following what they have been doing and it's really amazing: http://www.afgh.ch/eeindex.html

    Perfect harmony with the land and sea.

  • semi-circle

    beautiful. end of story.

  • mirtec

    though the designs are great, people should stop building at sites like these… only the happy few can afford this, but it has a very large impact on the landscape and the environment… perhaps greek government should ask more questions, instead of dealing with their financial troubles..
    great architecture, wrong place :/

    @ Mirtec

    Why does creating a building in this landscape have negative impact on the landscape? I guess you're right when talking about biodiversity, some animals or plants living at the exact spot of where these villa's are raised are 'pushed' away to start living on another piece of land.

    My opinion is these buildings fit harmoniously in the landscape and make it even more beautiful in a human way.

    Are we, people, only allowed to build in cities?

  • Bob

    It's a shame that the talents of architects are so often brought out in projects based on careless destruction of what could be land enjoyed in its natural state by everyone. If only such excess was confined to the city, or at least resorts already in existence, and people were able to enjoy places like these without having to jump fences or be astonishingly wealthy.

    "Antiparos is a small fisherman's island"…..ah yes, and here we see the vernacular small fisherman's homes, accessed by 'plane or high speedboat'…

    Anyone staying in these houses is just getting an abstracted, twisted experience of the place, to live out their cliched, movie based fantasies. I'm sorry for the architects who have done a good job- I would like to be able to do such skilled work. But please let it be in a different context, and let these fall into ruin quickly.
