The starting point of the design was the intention of the architects to take advantage of the exceptional climate of Cyprus in order to remove the boundaries between indoor and outdoor space and turn the movement in space into an experience in which the rich outdoor vegetation and landscaped surfaces are an extension and active part of the interior. Every architectural move and every building detail was designed with this final (or initial) intention in mind. The axes of motion are converted into the design axes of the building. Already from the street, the linear movement of the visitor turns into the backbone on which the house is built. The natural movement up to the entrance is transformed into the movement of the gaze from the reception area and onwards. At the same time the user is called to choose between private and public, in a clear separation of uses, which are eventually visually reunited through the external space.
