The Hestia Aegean. Hovering Over the Aegean, Hestia House in Karpathos, Greece. Discretely perched on a jagged hillside that dramatically plunges into the sea. On the southeast coast of Karpathos island in Greece. ‘Hestia House’ is a stunning summer house. by tt-ArtStudioMilano&Antwerp-based Kanika’s architects built as a sanctuary for a Paris-based, French-Swedish windsurfing couple. Blessed with expansive views of the Aegean Sea and a stone’s throw away from the sandy beach of Afiarti teeming. In the summer with windsurfers. It is no wonder they fell in love with the location the moment they set foot on it. The house seems to have been gently placed on the dramatic landscape rather than having been built on it. A purposeful gesture by the architects who conceived the building as a pristine geometric object. In juxtaposition to the untamed ruggedness of the rocky outcrop that it sits on.
Hestia chic house is Cantilevered structure
Designed as an austere cubic volume, the structure is cantilevered. Extending beyond the plateau which gives the impression, when you’re inside the house, that you’re hovering above the sea.
At the building’s core. A large planted courtyard provides a sheltered outdoor space protected from the strong winds that blow in the area.
The combination of Scandinavian furniture with references to traditional Karpathian. Architecture like the built in stone bench and the colourful ceramics and carpets. Filtered through a lens of contemporary-minimalism. Make Hestia House an elegant yet homely sanctuary wherefrom the island’s beautiful wildness can be relished.
