Only Peer-Reviewed Architecture is Allowed on Antiparos

Oliaros1 green
Setting aside an entire island exclusively for houses that were designed by the only best architectural firms is a completely novel idea, and a welcome change from business-as-usual.

Although we focus on architecture here at this site, in the real world; professionally designed homes are actually a rarity, set amongst all the banal and ugly monstrosities that commercial builders churn out. Perhaps only one in a hundred is designed by a professional.

To remedy this state of affairs, Athens developer Oliaros invited the top ten sustainable architectural firms to join together in creating a settlement of 24 inspired and sustainable houses on the Greek Island of Antiparos.

Lucky invitees? decaArchitecture, Katerina Tsigarida Arch, Andreas Angelidakis; AA Architecture Studio, Nicos Valsamakis, VOIS, Atelier Bow Wow, Harry Gugger Studio, AFGH Architects, Camilo Rebelo – Suzana Martins and Tala Mikdashi / tm studio.

Each home is pre sold and custom designed by each architectural firm to meet the needs of their specific client.

We’ve covered one of these unique houses already in Earth Sheltered Housing for Our Future Climates. Deca Architecture’s award-winning Aloni House with its extremely future-forward architecture, is typical of these inspiring and thoughtful dwellings, that build on a traditional regional architectural vernacular of distinctive Cycladic architecture that goes back 5,000 years.
