In trying to keep with a extended tradition of Mediterranean transformation and cultivation of nature and overcoming of “doc” (the regional phrase for a depression: a smaller arable land location), stone walls and altitude variations have been employed as the basis for laying new topographic layers in horizontal and vertical direction. Horizontal, gently undulating roof plate follows the inner structure of the constructing and also defines the physique of the home which is integrated into the landscape by its geometry. The basic and geometric types of the residence with their supplies and white stone facades are in accordance but also in contrast to the drywall.

The wonderful and higher high quality view observed from the plot is maximally utilized with large glass windows on the facades.
The residence is designed in several amounts simply because of the slope of the plot – the entrance is on the top floor, parking location is subsequent to the street, and other routines are organized in split-levels: 3 bedrooms with bathrooms, parents’; bedroom with a dressing room and a bathroom, staircase, spacious residing space, dining area, kitchen, services room, storage and toilet, Television lounge with a projector screen and space for youngsters to perform. Living and dining space have a direct connection with the outside spaces – partially covered terrace with an outside pool. The setting is also created in several levels – terraces that are connected by stairs and go down to the sea.
The facade and the roof are clad in white stone plates massive glass windows are partially recessed into the volume and open the home towards the sea but at the very same time guarantee a pleasant shade in the interior.
