The architecture on Sifnos is characterized by a traditional construction in partially whitewashed quarry stone masonry, which gives the buildings, old and new, a very high uniformity. The project foresees the construction of four independent houses of different sizes and typologies for a total of up to 13 people. The structures of the individual houses are conglomerates of simple cubic volumes made of load-bearing quarry stone masonry. They follow in their arrangement the topography with a height gradient of 15m, which also characterizes the interior structure of the houses.
