Tower House
Tower House

Plati Kyparisi, Kos, Greece


Year: 2015

Status: Completed

Design team: Nikos & Michalis Kantarzis

The project is about the restoration of a traditional towerhouse in the outskirts of Kos. The building was in a dilapidated condition and was designed in order to serve the needs of a contemporary residence, while retaining many of the traditional elements of a typical farmhouse. The limited spaces were utilized to the maximum in order to be fully functional.


A built- in sitting area with a fireplace, a small kitchen and a bathroom were configured in relation to a smaller second room. In addition, a loft was created to serve as a sleeping area. In the exterior spaces, elements such as the traditional furnace,the trough and the entrance gate, were preserved as typical examples of the farmhouses of Kos.
