Situated on a hillside overlooking the Aegean Sea, the Parallel House uses a linear layout to take advantage of its Cycladic setting. The single level home is partially embedded into the terrain while the waterfront end opens to the sweeping vistas. Its rectilinear form houses a series of rooms that run in a lateral chain, linking indoor and outdoor spaces. Internally, the board-formed concrete facade is left exposed on the inside, complemented by polished concrete floors and warm wood cabinetry. Walls of floor-to-ceiling glazing affords coastal views to the entire interior.
