Rocksplit Villa: A Chameleonic Industrial Design

Industrial Design | 187 views

Stealth houses are so thrilling! They’re low-profile on the outside, but they can be full of surprises on the inside. Today we introduce you Rocksplit – a chameleonic villa which blends minimal natural style with industrial design.

Located on the Greek Cycladic island of Kea, this private villa looks like it was created together with its surrounding mountains by gods themselves.

Those gods have names, this time. Faidra Matziaraki and Victor Gonzalez Marti, along with their team at Cometa Architects.

The sedimentary stonework of the construction – which was completed in 2016 and won an honourable mention for Best New Built Project from the Greek Architecture Awards, Domes in 2017 – takes inspiration on the traditional method of kotounto. This method consists of leaving a gap between the rocks and the building so humidity isn’t formed.

This exterior aesthetic holds another goal – to blend with the surrounding environment, preserving its nature and at the same time bring an effortlessness style so desired by minimalist lovers.

Inside the villa, the decor is typical of the Cycladic islands featuring simple, minimal furnishings with a touch of industrial style, many of which are built into the interior structure – like the sofas and tables in the living room, the wraparound counter space in the kitchen or the benches and wooden table of the veranda.

A captivating decor detail is also a natural rope, floor-to-ceiling, bannister leading up the staircase to the second floor. This material makes yet another appearance outside since rope is strung through the veranda’s wooden pergola creating a game between shadows and the sun.

Besides the kitchen, industrial design can also be spotted in the bathrooms – for instance in water taps and lighting pieces.

Notice how industrial elements are perfectly blended with the minimal whitewashed stone.

Taking advantage of the traditional and sustainable island architecture, each room features multiple small windows to allow light and cooling breezes in but keep the blazing summer sun out. All roofs collect rainwater through loose stones. That same water is stored in an underground tank, afterwards.
