PAPHOS, CYPRUS based architecture office Koutsoftides Architects recently design “Zephyros Villa” in beautiful site in Pomos, Cyprus. This house was created as holiday retreat. The main floor is devided into two by inserting in the middle a generous patio and a pool. Living in Cyprus is basically living outside, due to weather conditions. The sliding roofs retract to expose the sky, whilst the wooden screens , when opened , invite the surrounding nature to be part of the house.
The house faces north at the small fishing harbor of Pomos which was our focal point. The location and the orientation of the property creates a soothing feeling of calmness ,whilst the proximity of the cliff and the surrounding fields with lemon ,orange and pin trees add a blend of smells , mixed with thyme and other aromatic wild plants. Living in this house is being exposed to the elements , whilst being protected , like going camping , enjoying every moment of the day and night.
