The Greek island Cephalonia is located in the middle of Ionic Sea and was described by Homer. Its mountain peak has 1628 meters and is surrounded by the white clouds and sun radiance, clearly visible from the mainland. When the architect Olivier Dwek from Dwek Architects received the task to create the house on the slope, he was not hesitating: the topic of the project should be the island itself and the architecture should become its respectable framework and should emphasize the distinctiveness and even theatrical character of the views.
The main rooms and terraces of this house overlook the sea. Large sliding doors have connected the restroom and dining room with the patio. White facade`s plaster reminds of the spindrift, whereas monochromic contrast design is a reminder of the old architecture of Cyclades. Olivier Dwek is pretty sure that national traditions of Greece perfectly fit its modernity.
