Faidra Matziaraki Victor Gonzalez Marti Portrays The Rock Split At Kea Island House

Faidra Matziaraki Victor Gonzalez Marti, the creator of the displayed design Award Winning Rock Split at Kea Island House explains, This house of a family 4 is an homenaje to the modest but substantial mediterranean living. The steep hill and the plot’s narrow dimensions determine the pronounced and gradient form of the building which rises from the mountain and over the valley of Poisses, to finally balance itself with the surrounding traditional dwellings and the natural rocky context. Eager to apply the fundamentals of sustainabilty, solar energy is used for heating, rainwater is stored & the largest sum of the stone used, was from this same stone quarred from excavating the site itself, in order to lay the foundation..
