aristides dallas architects inserts 'lap pool house' into the rugged landscape of tinos island

aristides dallas architects has embedded the ‘lap pool house’ into the rugged landscape of tinos island in greece. drawing from the geophysical phenomena that form the island’s character, the minimalist residence is a reinterpretation of the impact between stone and air. the concrete home combines open living spaces that enjoy expansive views of the natural surroundings, while private spaces, such as bedrooms, remain totally protected.aristides dallas architects inserts 'lap pool house' into the rugged landscape of tinos islandall images by panagiotis voumvakis

aristides dallas architects has drawn from the greek island’s landscape of cavities and ledges to develop the ‘lap pool house’ as a building that adapts to its surrounding topography. at the same time, the home remains distinctly apparent thanks to its materiality, which comprises mainly of concrete and makes the project appear like a crack at the natural terrain. the different areas of the residence balance between exposure and introversion depending on their function, while an elongated swimming pool introduces a sense of fluidity.aristides dallas architects inserts 'lap pool house' into the rugged landscape of tinos island

 

 

the linear swimming pool extends towards the edge of the hill where the house is located, adding a sense of fluidity to the rocky surroundings. the pool also functions to subtly divide the building in two, separating a bedroom suite from the rest of the house. a semi-outdoor terrace connects the two volumes, sheltered from the elements thanks to a single concrete slab that tops the entire building. only the two bedrooms extend beyond the roof, and receive ample natural light thanks to a series of skylights.aristides dallas architects inserts 'lap pool house' into the rugged landscape of tinos island aristides dallas architects inserts 'lap pool house' into the rugged landscape of tinos island aristides dallas architects inserts 'lap pool house' into the rugged landscape of tinos island
