Located on the third largest island Tinos in Greece, this dream house is an amazing architecture concept by Kois Associated Architects that covered by a rimless pool on the top to create a visual effect of water expanding to the horizon, disappearance and merging with the seascape.
From the architects: From a distance especially if viewed from the path of approach, on a higher ground, the only visible feature of the house is the water of the pool. The water during the day reflects the surrounding rock formations and during the night the star filled night sky. The most of the visible construction materials were found in the vicinity and were used to make the house ‘disappear’ into the scenery. Local techniques were also borrowed like the characteristic dry wall construction found in abundance in the island. This technique was implemented with minor modifications; on the side embankment walls in each side of the pool volume. The local materials have a low impact on the environment while also being very efficient as insulating materials. The rear walls are made of retained earth that regulates the temperature. The pool acting as roof provides insulation and protection from solar radiation and heat transmittance.
