The plot orientation in the big side South-western with view to the sea. The project concerns a summer house with hostels and a pool. Volumes are placed on a Π shaped layout with a central courtyard as according to traditional prototypes. The central courtyard organises the functions, creating a central core on direct report to the uses around it. Using the elements of the Cycladic Architecture, we designed a building that is adjusted to the landscape, split in different levels. In this way the adaptation of the building to the landscape is harmonious and the volume of the central residence is the least possible. The architecture is subjugated in the landscape and at the same time is using the intense Cycladic light to elect a particular morphology using as background the arid landscape and the endless blue.The house has references in the archetypal models of dwelling, with a modern certain output.  In the interior the lack of bisector walls and the complete absence of elements such as curtains that would hide the light create a disposal of absolute freedom. Built by simple materials, plaster in white colour, floorings and bathrooms by poured material, the house is distinguished by austerity and simplicity in lines.A space that submits its own pace, dictated by the light and air depending on the day and the season.
