Refurbishment, reconstruction, interior and furniture design
On a property near the northwest coast of Tinos island, with olive trees, natural rocks and views on the Aegean sea, there were two detached farmhouses that needed refurbishment. There was a need for redesigning the two spaces into a single farmhouse, and for redesigning areas of the landscape and the exterior of the house. The space was redesigned so as to host the summer vacation of a couple with one or two children, to be flexible in using a nearly open space and in being connected with a farming landscape and its function.
The openings of the house keep the space illuminated, ventilated and well connected with the landscape on each side. In the open space of the kitchen and living –room, furniture design focuses on the long, orthogonal volume of the house, and ends at the steps leading to the second level, the darker, more private, more “interior” space of the bedroom. Landscape design is in progress, focused on the natural land levels and natural elements of the site.
