Located on the Greek island of Tinos and sited on a sharp sloping rocky plot that overlooks the Aegean Sea ‘Mirage’ is a single-story structure (under construction) whose living space is covered by a rimless infinity pool rooftop. Designed by Kois Associated Architects from a distance on higher ground the pool acts to produce a stunning visual impact reflecting the surroundings and appearing at one with the sea.
Brought to life by Kim Alexander Builders the breezy home is spread across and comes with a gorgeous living area kitchen dining space and a cozy bedroom. The cantilevered structure of the home offers wonderful views of the landscape that surround the lot even as the large porches extend the living area outdoors. Plenty of greenery around the dwelling gives it the appeal of a relaxing holiday home and large glass windows and doors aid in blurring the line between the interior and the garden outside.
This two-story house by Architekten Innauer Matt named after the clients as “Haus für Julia und Björn” (House for Julia and Björn) has a steep roof and structural elements that include roof cantilevers. The roof’s pitch allowed for loft spaces to be added to the smaller bedrooms.
In designing this hexagonal home in Toyota Japan Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates separated the roof from the exterior wall using clerestory windows. In doing so the architects afforded the homeowner views of the sky from the entire circumference of the house.
The decor inside the home seems to showcase a seamless blend of the vintage the midcentury and the contemporary as each room has a subtle touch of contrasting styles. A small entry leads into the living room that is filled with a couple of cozy sofas in off-white along with a smart blue rug that brings color and playfulness to the setting. The restrained use of color lets the few accent additions and the wall art shine through while the twin windows fill the space with plenty of natural light.
