When you think of homes in Greece, the first thing that will come to your mind are white stone houses or white homes with straight lines or curvy features.
This is a common thing that we can see in movies or in postcards. The traditional Greek house design is still famous these days.
But did you know that modern homes in Greece also reflect the traditional architecture in the area?
You will be amazed how designers are able to come up with houses in the area.
Want to see how they look like?
Well today, we are going to show you a house located in Greece. The designers call it House in Messaria which is a modern Greek house.
If you are curious on how it looks like, simply scroll down below and you will see.
Location: Santorini, Greece
Designer: Kapsimalis Architects
Number of Levels: Two-storey
Unique feature: A modern house which combines its design with traditional Greek architecture.
Kapsimalis Architects designed this new modern summer house in Santorini, Greece. It sits on a slightly sloped site. Notice that it used straight lines in its design with large windows that provide views of the sea.
The design of the house isn’t that complicated but it looks beautiful with the white exterior and the plants around it.
The interior of the house has white plaster walls that are just as bright as the exterior. What you can see here is the living room with pops of color and touches of wood. For the flooring, it used grey cement plaster which is a good contrast with the white walls.
Pops of yellow can be seen in the interior. There are also plants inside the house which adds more beauty to it and brings more refreshing aura.
This is the dining area of the house with white kitchen cabinets and a wooden dining table. It has a floor-to-ceiling window that provide views of the area around it.
The house also has a staircase which is white in color. It seems to blend with the walls because of its color. Just below the stairs is a console table with wooden touches.
This is how the staircase looks like as it leads to the upper levels of the house. You can also get a glimpse of a door that leads to the bathroom.
Another look of the steps that lead to a small landing area. From there, one can get into a small courtyard.
Like the rest of the house, the bedroom is also white in color. But you can see other colors from its textile. It appears that this space also has direct access to the courtyard.
The bathroom is also white with simple modern fixtures in it. It has a long rectangular mirror on the wall which makes it visually larger.
Half way up the stairs, which we saw in the images above, is a small landing where you can view the living room from above. At the top of the stairs is a small bridge that provides access to the bedroom.
This is the view of the living room from the bridge. Notice that the furniture is reminiscent of the lines that are used in the home’s architecture.
The house features an outdoor dining area with wooden dining table, just like what we saw in the dining space inside the house. It would be nice to dine here especially during afternoons.
One nice feature of the house is this tree which goes through the house in the terrace. This space also has beautiful white furniture which is perfect for the design of the house.
During the night, the outdoor space is lighted, as well as the interior of the house, which makes it even more beautiful.
If you want a home that is simple but sophisticated, then this is the one for you. For sure, you love the design of this home from Kapsimalis Architects which doesn’t just have a beautiful exterior but also a very nice interior. There are many features of the house that you will fall in love with and one of that is its usage of the color white. Aside from that, its interior decorating is very impressive too as the designers made it sophisticated not too much to retain a simple appeal. How about you, what can you say about this house?
