Kitma house

Ktima in Greek means farm or piece of fertile land. The project site is a steeply sloping plot that this mostly green and features three trees, an exception on the island of Antiparos.
Order and chaos can be found in Greek civilisation since antiquity, and indeed today still. These were the themes that gave rise to the design.
The construction can have two readings in the landscape. Seen from above, from the main road, it is thick, white, abstract line that adapts to the topography and the interior space requirements. From the other side, the sea, one nds the façade with its gurative, continuous but at the same time fragmented composition that reminds one of an ancient citadel.
In the Greek building regulations for the island, volumes cannot exceed ten metres in length. That rule dictated the rhythm of the composition, wherever it related to the interiors. In the relationship with the exterior we sought to give all spaces di ering contextualisations in the landscape and, above all, to vary the quantity and intensity of the light they receive.
