Rodialos is located in the middle of Crete’s northen coast, near the village of Panormon, on one of the island’s many rocky shores. Surounding the house, are organically cultivated gardens facing Cretan Sea.The architecture, the colours, the construction materials and the landscape, all evoke a strong recollection of Minoan Crete.
Is built in harmony with the landscape and reflects the beauty of the Minoan era.Materials are traditional and natural:Stone,earth marble,wood.The paints used, are also naturally sourced,like those on Byzantine art with colours inspired by the surrounding pallete and the minoan paintings
The geometrical shape of Rodialos, the many entrances, the view from all the windows to the landscape and the sea, make the inhabitants feel that they live indoors and outdoors simultaneously,as life of Greeks is mostly in the open.
