Cometa Architects Design a Private Residence in the Cyclades
By Magaly • May 11, 2017
This wonderful structure, made with stones carefully crafted against the horizontal micro-cement surfaces and local materials, was designed by Cometa Architects, who worked with the natural cycladic landscape to establish the relationship of the building with the surrounding land.
The home is located specifically on Kea Island, also known as Ceos or Gia. It is an island in the Cyclades archipelago, located in the Aegean Sea, Greece and it is the closest to the coast. This island is characterized by its mountainous landscapes, arid and fertile valleys, and is very famous for its local wine, honey, and almonds.
The property has three levels, among which we find wonderful terraces with views equipped with canopies that filter and provide shade from the Mediterranean sun and offer us a setting where to spend time with family and friends.
Its marvelous interior is full of light, and enjoys a simplistic décor, perfect for this type of dwelling where comfort prevails over luxury.
The furniture has been integrated and built into the whitewashed interior, with the sofas doubling as storage space, and the wrap-around counter space in the kitchen and the beds serves as benches.
In the evening, we cannot miss the wonderful spectacle that is the view of the sky full of stars.
