There is something captivating and inspiring about modern architecture. The creative minds at Paly Architects have created a unique example of contemporary design known as the Chania Holiday House. The waterfront home is found on the coast of Crete, using the rocky terrain as protection from the northern winds. The home uses concrete, local stone, and other natural materials that seamlessly blend in with the surrounding landscape.
This harmonious design is both eye-catching and exceptional. The interior is divided into two volumes. One is host to the living room, kitchen, and dining area, while the other features the bedrooms. The home also features a semi-outdoor living space that is encased in glazing. When the doors are open, the room extends into a covered terrace.
A wooden pergola also runs perpendicular to the volume, extending across the pool and a suspended platform overlooking the sea. This home is nothing short of magnificent and indeed a design worthy of your time and attention.
Take a closer look inside the Chania Holiday House and find out more about the dwelling from Paly Architects. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more modern architecture coming very soon.
