Modern Residence by Vardastudio Architects
Situated in Paphos, Cyprus, this modern two-storey concrete residence was recently designed by Vardastudio Architects. Formally the house is composed as two volumes on two levels, externally distinguished by materials, whilst coming together internally through a concise interior design that integrates the living spaces. The corten steel clad upper floor sits atop the extraordinarily smooth fairface concrete ground floor, and opens up to the rear creating a sheltered L-shaped veranda. At ground floor the living area also opens up to a rear deck and a garden beyond. Material finishes and edges were detailed carefully to tie together with the formal concept and create a building that appears inevitable and effortlessly designed.
