Marinou residence in kiti, Larnaca, Cyprus, is based upon the concept of ‘experiences’, where it delivers great views and walking experiences that are created by interchangeable qualities of space. Closed off from the main road the house opens up onto the garden and covered and uncovered external areas. Accommodation is spread over a basement level, ground and first floors, and is designed so that the internal spaces open up to the outdoors – the marinou residence provides interiors for relaxation, contemplation and offers occupants distinctive views. ‘Pockets’ penetrate the shell of the building and bring external spaces towards internal areas, allowing green spaces and water to traverse or cross boundaries.
