 The private residence is situated in the outskirts of Monemvasia, Greece, in a high pitch ground with panoramic view to the sea.

The functional units of the residence are distributed along a synthetically emphasized axis of movement creating two alternative open spaces allowing a maximum exploitation of the panoramic view and continuity between indoor and outdoor spaces. The gradation of movement between solid and void spaces enables their adaptation to the slope organized in three levels.

The relationship between the building and tradition is expressed through references on its synthetic structure rather than regionalist ones.

Among the materials used, most significant are the stone- which underlines the basic synthetic principals, fair faced concrete and hacked plaster. Wooden decks and panels complete the composition of the residence.
