A Surfer’s House by Christiana Karagiorgi Architects
A Surfer’s House is a cute cottage located in Peyia, Cyprus, designed in 2022 by Christiana Karagiorgi Architects.
Situated in a small plot in Pegeia – Paphos, a 100 sqm house stands above ground, enclosing outdoor spaces into a functional circuit of semi covered and covered areas, exposing “Akamas peninsula” plants and rocky grounds.
The design suggests living in between (the inside and outside space). Plants and rocky fields are captured by the structure and let rest into living spaces.The construction’s ground imprint is minimised in order to preserve the local microclimate and natural flora.
Natural materials and claddings combined with movable screens made of reeds enclose exterior spaces into a light / almost transparent cubical #volume facing the sea view.
