Situated in the northern side of the Cyclades, Tinos is the third biggest island of the group. Surely understood as the “Island of Madonna”, Tinos is the best focus of journey in Greece. Inside of its scene of rough, rough slopes lay more than 40 towns, similar to marble parts of an antiquated statue scattered over the slopes. The island is celebrated for its untainted construction modeling, its pleasant towns and wonderful view. More than a thousand places of worship can be found on slants and ridges, a thousand or so dovecotes, while perfect works of art of nearby building design and several abandoned windmills are found in its ravines and valleys. The view is lined by a great many kilometers of dry stonewalls that make the scene outwardly novel.


The habitation is arranged on steep inclined rough plot confronting south disregarding the Aegean Sea. It is a solitary level structure and has a surface of 198 square meters. The area permits profiting from great and all encompassing perspectives of the scene and seascape.


Our objective was to incorporate the building into the scene such as it was a piece of it. The living space is secured by a rimless pool that creates a visual impact of water stretching out to the skyline, vanishing and converging with the seascape. From a separation particularly if saw from the way of methodology, on a higher ground, the main obvious element of the house is the water of the pool. The water amid the day mirrors the encompassing rock arrangements and amid the night the star filled night sky. The majority of the noticeable development materials were found in the region and were utilized to make the house “vanish” into the view. Nearby strategies were likewise obtained like the trademark dry divider development found in wealth in the island. This strategy was executed with minor changes; as an afterthought dike dividers in every side of the pool volume. The nearby materials lowly affect the earth while likewise being exceptionally proficient as protecting materials. The back dividers are made of held earth that controls the temperature. The pool going about as rooftop gives protection and assurance from sun oriented radiation and heat transmittance.


We needed to make a house intertwined with its surroundings, an undetectable desert garden avoided the unsuspected eyes. The house is acts verging on like a perception indicate as it sticks the stones and directs the sensational falling scene.
