Hug House by React Architects – Paros Island, Greece

React Architects have designed and built one of the most beautiful homes on the Island of Paros. The low-lying house complex features a stone exterior wall into a curved site that slopes down toward the sea and preserves the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape into the design of the Hug House. Located in the rocky landscape of the Agios Ioannis Detis area, React Architects have created a 11,00 sq m site made up of two houses with white plaster walls, a courtyard and swimming pool surrounded by the stone exterior wall and enveloping the structure from the surrounding landscape.

The design works to bring privacy to the exposed site - the entry of the house complex is from the highest point of the site, descending between two buttressing walls into the heart of the courtyard. The large stone wall protects inhabitants from the strong northern winds and a sense of privacy. The stone of the exterior walls is relatively similar to the surrounding terrain, enabling the structure to blend in with the landscape.
