The Earth underground dwelling

← Back to the Portfolio

A collaboration with Yannis Stathopoulos Architect, Simpl.gr

The Earth underground dwelling plot is located in the island of Skiathos and enjoys spectacular sea views. The goal was to create a house that blends in the landscape and that it’s interior and exterior spaces are  accessible to all. We designed  a simple rectangular planted slab with scattered skylights and host all interior functions beneath it. The whole complex and its exterior spaces, stretches in a single floor to ensure maximum accessibility.  The main living space and the 3 autonomous bedrooms enjoy access to the main veranda and  undisturbed views to the Aegean sea. The Skylights provide more natural light an cross ventilation to all interior spaces.
