Mold Architects completes "cave-like" house overlooking the Mediterranean Sea

Greek studio Mold Architects has completed a subterranean house on the island of Serifos that is partially submerged into a rocky hillside and features glazed openings that look straight out to sea.

Architect Iliana Kerestetzi’s Athens-based practice designed the NCaved house for a site in a secluded cove just metres from the sea cliffs.

The brief called for a building that makes the most of the spectacular views but is sheltered from strong northerly winds. These conditions informed the decision to bury the house into the landscape rather than exposing it above ground.

Vidoe is by Panagiotis Voumvaki.
