Contemporary Funnel-Shaped Residential Project in Cyprus
Embracing the Mediterrean climate, Cyprus is a wonderful spot for creating that perfect ambient that you end up calling home. For the Lambrianou Koutsolambros Architects, to build and furnish a contemporary house, with a swimming pool integrated, was definitely a challenging experience. The Funnel House project is located in a small village, called Agia Marinouda. According to the architects, the shape of it was determined by the views.
The architects tried to create a spot for relaxation, putting the stakes on an eco-friendly structure. The main idea was to give this house a sustainable look and at the same time, keep it all tidy and elegant. The swimming pool, together with the maze of greenery were imagined as connectors between the inhabited home and the outdoors. Cheerful circular cracks were made in one of the walls, letting the sunlight penetrate the house in the morning dawn. For a dramatic effect, the artificial light pierces the wall “escaping” through the cracks. The living room table, the opaque glass wall – these are just a few of the “spotted” interior design elements, that reflect the chosen theme. A glossy look, with marble details complete the décor. The architects insisted on the importance of nature, providing to the client a clean and refreshing home. All in all, the architects stated that: “The outcome is reminiscent of Greek island whiteness, coolness and adjacency to earth and water”.
