The house and the outdoor areas face Southwest with linear elements directing all focus towards the Paphos sea. We created a physical and visual passage through the ground floor level, we released a maximum amount of space for the garden. Two main axes divide the ground floor garden and it creates the landscape path between the entrance lobby and flat entrance.
The entrance path allows the water element and vegetation to pop out and allows the user to discover the residence. The ground floor area is characterized by the opening into the garden and transparency. The triple height staircase with the green wall creates a big indoor garden.
The Bridge House (First Floor) divided in two axes. The main Axis inlcuding Kitchen, Dining Area and Living Space are located in southwest orientation which has the best view through the Paphos Sea. The full-height glass elevation on the first floor allows unobstructed views to the sea, as well as to the water element (Pool Glass) on the northern side of the house and above the tv Furniture. The second Axis including 3 en suites Bedrooms are located in northeast which has the view through the mountains.
