This house which is situated in a beautiful location on the Aegean Sea, expresses itself in the peaceful balance with nature and its minimalist concept. The gardens have many plants and trees native to the Aegean region such as lavender, bonsai, olive, thyme and jasmine whilst also reminiscing of the spirit of Provence.
Although the house appears to be single storey at garden level, part of the living area is incorporated into the basement so actually forming two storeys. The project, although in keeping with a `summer` house ideal, satisfies all the necessities for comfortable living, maximizing use of the garden. To this and parts of the original architectural project were altered to fit in with the concept. The house owners had an important input into the project, with their positive approach and decisive tastes, working alongside the interior architect to
achieve the final concept.
