Daily Dream Home: Stone House

A stone house seems like a cold idea at first, but creativity captures the best way to display such a rough material. Melding stone and wood in a fascinating modern residence, Whitebox Architects designed the Stone House in Athens, Greece, for a family of four. Overlooking the Anavissos gulf, this contemporary dream home rests on a slightly sloped lot defined by a rocky terrain. Displaying its social and private spaces within an L-shaped floor plan, the Stone House surprises the essence of modern architecture in a family-friendly environment.

Living spaces were designed to offer the perfect atmosphere for family life, accentuating the visual appeal and fabricating an amazing place to grow (up). An atrium with a mobile roof sloping to the north welcomes daylight inside, while the office space on the ground floor allows the mother to supervise her children while working. All four bedrooms face views of the nearby sea, offering serenity and happiness. Between the children’s bedrooms, the atrium offers views to the ground floor. Stone walls protect the home from the north wind, while fixed wooden blinds filters the direct sunlight, while the wooden “sachnisi” is a historical reference to the Greek refugees who migrated here from Asia Minor back in 1922 and worked in the local salt marshes.
