greek firm LMarchitects has recently completed the ‘vacation house’, a single family summer residence near
monemvasia, greece. positioned upon a steep slope, the tiered building offers dwellers a panoramic view to
the adjacent sea. organized into three levels to accommodate the terrain, the interior circulation passes through
solid and void spaces. rooms are arranged along an implied axis of movement encouraging continuity
between indoor and outdoor areas.

combined living, dining and kitchen areas parallel the main entry path and provide vistas to the ocean from an
open air terrace. the building’s materials introduce a relationship with tradition, predominantly the choice of stone,
emphasizing a strong sense of place, along with fair faced concrete and hacked plaster. wood accents found within
the deck flooring and door panels of the home complement the permanent exterior appearance.
