Crete House

Designed by Paly Architects, this spectacular residence is located on the Greek island Crete, it is placed on a steep slope of a rocky area, overlooking the beautiful Western Cretan Sea towards the South. Built using earthy materials (concrete, local stone and polished cement), the elongated residence is strategically semi-buried in the ground to protect it from the northern wind. The house features large sliding windows that unify the interior and exterior and create a large, open, pergola roofed, living area which is consolidated with the sheltered terrace. Outside an infinity pool, an open-air barbeque, outdoor dining and seating area on a platform and a protected semi-open space with a fireplace are perfect for entertaining guests.
