House in Paros by React Architects

This weekend house overlooking the sea by Greek studio React Architects is set into the sloping landscape of the Greek island of Paros.

The house is laid out around a courtyard and swimming pool, with stepped levels to suit the sloping ground.

The island of Paros is to the east of neighbouring island Antiparos, where Dezeen recently featured a similar house by decaArchitecture.

Vacation House On Paros Island - Cyclades

The plot is located at the island of Paros in the Cyclades. It has orientation in the big side South-western with view to the sea.

The project concerns a summer house with hostels and a pool. The place of the residence is to benefit of the view to the Aegean Sea.

The houses volumes are placed on a Π shaped layout with a central courtyard as according to traditional prototypes.

The central courtyard organises the operations, creating a central core in direct report to the uses around it.

Using the elements of the Cycladic Architecture, we designed a building that is adjusted to the landscape, split in different levels.

In this way the adaptation of the building to the landscape is harmonious and the volume of the central residence is the least possible.

The building from the eastern side is almost entirely adjusted to the ground. The architecture is subjugated in the landscape and at the same time is using the intense Cycladic light to elect a particular morphology using as background the arid landscape and the endless blue.

      it's just a sea… Aegean sea which needs no framing, bordering or limit – it is, by itself & by our vision, perfect veduta… also there are so many amazing houses around compared to this one, it's only something is lack of everything
