    Default Modern Residence in Cyprus

    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.

    Cold and austere. More mauseleum than homey.

    It looks like a bunker. That's not so bad. I could stay there except I dislike homes with all windows and doors facing one direction only. I wish they had a view from the second story, wrap around, balcony since that is my favorite part of this.

    It's like living in an expensive garage, so no.

    More Stairs of Doom in a concrete bunker. No redeeming features whatsoever. Please can we move on from these concrete horrors and build somewhere to LIVE in rather than admire for its trendy cliches.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Nothing says, "c'mon in and set a spell" at all. No pillows, candles, plants. Looks like a cheap container home.
