Mirage Residence by Kois Associated Architects

Designed for a steep and rocky hillside on the Greek island of Tinos, the Mirage residence by Kois Associated Architects will soon overlook the Aegean Sea and integrate into the landscape as if it were a part of it. The living space is covered by a rimless pool that produces a visual effect of water extending to the horizon, vanishing and merging with the seascape. From a distance, especially if viewed from the path of approach on a higher ground, the only visible feature of the house is the water of the pool. The water during the day reflects the surrounding rock formations and during the night the star-filled night sky. Most of the visible construction materials were found in the vicinity and were used to further enhance the feeling of the house disappearing into the scenery.
