Chora Ovest

The property is located on the west slope of Chora in Kythera, with views towards the Castle and the islet of Hytra. The design collected and recomposed the building’s old ruins into a new residence developed in two levels, drawing structural and morphological elements from Chora’s old built context. The main building materials were plastered stone for the masonry and wood for the ceilings and pergolas.

Design - Construction: 2006 – 2007
