Modern Villa with stone in North Rethymno Crete


The building’s structure follows the terrain. It develops on two levels with the first floor is established at the highest level, from where the users can enjoy the views to the northern coast of Crete. The ground floor is founded on the next level, creating a more extensive terrace for the floor level on the northeast side.

The main areas of the house are located on the first floor of the building in order to enjoy the maximum view. These are two bedrooms, a bathroom, a W.C. and an open plan area where the living room, kitchen and dining room are founded. The ground floor is used as parking and warehouse and access is via the external staircase and also from the natural terrain.

Regarding the facades of the building, the north- east and south-west sides have been lined with stone, making visible on the facades the functional differentiation that exists in the floor plans, the daily functions and the night functions. The stone was chosen, as final wallcovering material, to apply a traditional material feeling to the architectural composition and harmonize the modern building structure to the environment.
