Overlooking the valley of Poisses on the Greek island of Kea, the Rocksplit House uses local materials and traditional building methods to marry with its mountainous landscape. The home is comprised of three volumes, all clad in a native stone. Each one is split up by function — a main living area, sleeping quarters, and a circulation tower. The interior maintains the exterior's neutral affair with white washed wood, gray stone, and pale stucco. Covered verandas flank the central structure, acting as a refuge from the harsh Mediterranean climate while taking in the seaside views.
