On the coast of northeastern Santorini, Kapsimalis Architects imagines the Complex of Two Houses. The pair of homes take the form of a natural rock formation, appearing to be carved out of the volcanic landscape. An exterior made from uncoated concrete and finished with earthy hues gives the facade a boulder-like appearance. Interiors continue the geological aesthetic with exposed cement walls and floors to mimic the feeling of living inside a rock, allowing wood-trimmed windows to frame in views of the landscape. Around the outside, dual outdoor spaces offer unique experience. A terrace at the rear provides a sunken seating area with a fireplace while the front balcony features a sun deck and swimming pool overlooking the Aegean Sea.
