The design of any built structure should ideally fit seamlessly within its surroundings. That concept of taking a building and melding it with the neighboring environment was taken to an impressive extreme with this home in Greece. Designed by Greek architecture firm decaARCHITECTURE, the Aloni House not only is designed to fit into the surrounding hillside, but its design allowed the home to be literary incorporated into its environment. The home may feature weathered stone walls and a green roof, but its rustic exterior also gives way to a very modern, bright, and spacious interior.
The Aloni House has been awarded with the Piranesi Award in part for balancing contemporary green design with Greek tradition.
