Stone and Irokko Wood Shaping a Home in Picturesque Cyprus Village

Dressed in a wooden skin, this stone home in Cyprus was designed by Paphos-based VARDAstudio on a hillside property under the warm Greek sun. Photography by Maria Efthymiou from different angles so that we can see details of modern Greek architecture, this home differentiates itself from neighboring houses with its volumetric design. Rising in the ethnic mountain village of Platres, this home was designed for simple living within a modern society. VARDAstudio's “House with a wooden skin” is a contemporary addition to an old village known for its wine history.

Showcasing an architecture made of traditional materials like local stone and wood, this modern village residence is dressed in Irokko wood cladding strategically opened here and there in order to connect the interiors with the surroundings. Acting as windows to nature, these openings can be closed with shutters when the weather gets to hot to handle. As you can see when taking a closer look, the wooden skin continues up and over the roof, creating a single design element that shapes the upper floor entrance. Inside, the light and airy interiors were collected to shape a serene living environment. In order to create an “exciting and pleasing spatial experience“, the architects imagined a main interior vertical axis , a void that “creates a continuous emotional experience” throughout the house while flooding each floor with natural light.

This home might look simple, but its that simplicity itself that stood at the base of the whole concept. Do you like what you see?

Charming Modern Home Extension Re-Shaping Socializing Opportunities

Extending a home to fit current needs is not to be taken easily. A modern home extension requires planning for future use and using what already exists to support that. An exemplary proof is Casa ATT by Dionne Arquitectos, a home in Puebla, Mexico, that was re-designed by the architects as a fuller, more nurturing collection of spaces. In their successful effort of renewing the outline of the house, architects integrated the new structure into the familiar floor plan by “generating clear transitional environments discovering visual axes and circulation leading to the new spaces.”

Plenty of socializing areas bring the family together: the new open social space, terrace and guest bedroom complete the necessary space and helps better organize the interiors. In addition, the terrace overlooking the garden connects the original volume with the new additions. In these photos captured by Patrick López Jaimes, the layout looks beautifully put together. From the front, the house looks private and once you step inside, details flood your design-hungry mind. According to the architects, “ATT House is a house in which a clear spatial harmony lives through environments that invite habitation.”

What do you think about this modern home extension? Can this home inspire you to extend your own piece of heaven? mo
