Summer House in Greece

Second post today, dears and we are going all minimalistic. You have been warned!

Interior designer Marilyn Katsaris is the owner of this house on the island of Tinos in Cyclades, Greece. Designed by Greek Zege architects it is located on a mountain in the old residential site of Triandros. It is actually made up of two separate houses which have been brought together through a picturesque veranda. Pigeon whole windows, curved white forms of structure and exposed stone formations are the examples of this typical form of architecture.

In an open plan layout almost everything is built in with the spaces made up of strictly 2 materials: cement detailing throughout and wooden beams decorating the ceiling. Books are placed in the built in compartments, the radiators exposed in niches and in the kitchen the plates and glasses are placed on open built in shelves.
