A MIRROR ON THE ISLAND OF MADONNA
Mirage is a magnificent project that is a poetic effort to reconcile nature and architecture. With a unique design, the house is located on the Tinos Island, Greece, and is perfectly fused with the landscape, highlighting the region`s identity and creating an incredible optical illusion. Designed by Kois Associated Architects, the house was built on a steep and rocky site, overlooking the Aegean Sea, and is cloaked by an infinity pool. Providing an illusion inspired by the optical phenomenon of "mirage", the pool merges with the landscape and creates a mirror effect that reveals the presence of the residence.
