Architetcs: George Kroustallis
Location: Milos Island, Greece
In the unspoiled terrain of the Greek island of Milos, a sanctuary takes form, not as an alien imposition, but as an organic extension of the landscape. Cave House in Milos is a metamorphosis of the rock itself, epitomizing the untapped potential of architecture to merge with nature.
Born from my Greek heritage and a deep connection to Milos’ unique topography, this virtual project is a collaborative endeavor between me, visual artist & director George Kroustallis, and 3D designer Alvaro Polo.
The architecture of Cave House is a study in contrasts—raw yet refined, organic yet geometric. Structural elements defy gravity, as if molded by time and Aegean winds, initiating a dialogue between interior and exterior spaces.
Concrete is employed with intention, harmonizing with geometric furniture that blends brutalism and primitive design. This austerity is softened by the natural rock forms and the warmth of Greek marble. Fluid architecture is realized as spaces flow seamlessly from inside to outside.
Cave House in Milos exemplifies the transformative power of architecture—a digitally-forged Cycladic symbiosis that attempts to redefine space and place but also boldly stretches the aesthetic boundaries. It offers a visionary glimpse into a spatial future that is as much rooted in the landscape as it is in pushing the limits of design.
