Paros House by John Pawson

By Leibal
Paros House is a minimal home located in Paros, Greece, designed by John Pawson.

The ground floor accommodation of Paros House is arranged as a series of white cubic volumes set in an L around the pool. The principal private quarters rise citadel-like from the quiet drama of this massing, commanding sightlines that extend over the entirety of the property, inland to a rugged line of hills and seaward to the layered coastal horizon. Contrasting with the smooth rendered planes of the house, low stone walls track around the property, framing a series of sheltered terraces and courtyards, with additional shade provided by trees and a graphically spare pergola, which casts rhythmic bands of deep shadow across an area of the main terrace.
