Recently tipped as one of the hottest young architecture firms in the world, Athens-based Klab Architects have designed this summer house on Andros Island. The titled ‘Embassies House’ combines modern lines while experimenting with traditional forms, such as large contemporary window panes and masonry wall foundation, while the building echoes of Greek monastery. Situated on a south-facing slope, the house enjoys stunning scenery all around, including one towards the sea from an open courtyard sheltered by a fabric canopy atop a wall of stacked stone. The main building consists of two structures connected by a circular ramp, and there’s also two satellite structures that allow a storage room and a guest home tucked away by the trees.
