House M

Reconstruction of a 1890’s Myconian country house from ruins.

The brief required the design of a holiday house for a businessman, with extensive facilities for entertaining and hosting of guests.

The house is  facing a slope and  shaped by rock formations. All the  important elements of the house, such as the old fireplaces, were restored by local workers, in the best way.
