The primary idea for this project unfolds at the intersection of various parallel investigations, all of which relate to the unique topology of the surrounding area, its orientation, the views, and to the distinct characteristic features of Cycladic homes such as their scale, density, and height.

The composition is handled in a way that does not imply exaggerated gestures, but instead tends toward the layering and subtlety rooted in the site’s local idiosyncrasies.

As Jean-Philippe Vassal would say, the project “attempts to do a lot with what is already there”.

By playfully interpreting the contours and serpent-like coastal boundary, the work maintains a parallel aesthetic relationship with Richard Serra’s sculptures.
