Naturally efficient. 

The subterranean architectural concept of the Carved House has brought passive building design concepts & principles to reality. With the facade facing southwest, an external shading system that overlaps the high-end glazing comes to action & in conjunction with various skylights & windows at the back-of-house open spaces allows us to actually control the daylight, ventilation, humidity & heating by natural means in order to output the best possible living conditions for residents at the lowest possible energy cost.The facade of the house is highly protected due to a layer of ETICS thermal insulation system.

Mirroring the Aegean sea.

Floor to ceiling glazing in every room of the carved house allows for stunning views of the Aegean Sea without compromise including full sunset experiences. Entire parts of the plot have been left intact letting cavities of space between them that host the exterior spaces of the house. These inclined parts of land create viewing angles from inside & outside that are free of redundant information.

Frameless sliding door units are fitted to every window with recessed profiles that allow for a flat-level flooring installation. Glazing is a 26mm thick panel with double SEKURIT glass & 14mm ARGON air spacing. 

 

Flooring surfaces.

Earthy surfaces from stone-like materials, to rough coatings & raw wood can be found all over the house. Continuous use of the same material inside & outside creates an even better feeling of openness. 

High quality Italian ceramic tiles covers most of the house's flooring: the entire exterior space as well as the master bedroom & the living & dinning room inside the house. Three of the suite rooms feature both a cement coated flooring surface as well as raw wood boards.

 

Bathrooms.

We have carefully designed each of the Carved House's bathroom spaces one by one to create unique & thematic experiences that only draw inspiration from the island's legacy & history but also honour the contemporary way of living & highest standards that the CH residents have been used to.

Following different themes & patterns in each room, the Carved House is equipped with the latest bathroom equipment.

Large cooking areas. Cellar room.

The Carved House's boutique style open plan kitchen lets residents enjoy cooking & eating at a unified 50 sq.m. space that looks both at the front & at the back of the house emphasising on the essence of openness. Kitchen equipment is manufactured by one of the best brands, LEICHT with mechanical components & cupboard finishes of high end quality. 

The boutique style kitchen area extends to a second dedicated kitchen space suitable for preparation & cooking by the house's staff.

Next to the kitchen area, a walk-in fridge, the wine cellar room is dedicated to host an exclusive collection of fine wines. Using autonomous ventilation & a "cellulator" engine it allows for optimum wine maintenance and lets the room work as one of the house's highlights.
