Detached House in Apokoronas
Chania, Crete, Greece / 2021
This two-storey detached house in Apokoronas with pool, demonstrates that great things can be achieved on a compact site, with the street to the east, even for a big boisterous family.
The design response utilises the most evident strength of the site – the front northwest facing plot, to create two levels of stylish living spaces – in compliance with the strict planning heights with a tranquil and calm feel to accommodate the owners.
An empathetic design has been utilized to dissolve boundaries between interior and exterior and successfully embrace the best parts of the site and landscape – allowing one to flow to another, joining the heart of the house with its surroundings.
