Weekend house by Architect Nicos Valsamakis

Architect Nicos Valsamakis. We recently discovered images of this staggeringly beautiful mid-century modern Greek home. These images are of the Lanaras Weekend House located in Greece. This modern home was built by the talented, driven Greek Architect Nicos Valsamakis, who is known as a pioneer in greek architecture.

He is easily recognized by his geometric forms in his designs. In fact, his first multi-story apartment building, otherwise known as “polikatikia”, radically changed urban design in Athens forever.

We love the harmonious proportions, its minimalism and open spaces that draw you between indoor and outdoor living. Its almost as if this home were an extension of the horizon, melding with the blue sky above. The two planes are supported by thin steel posts creating an elegant yet delicate feel to the whole structure. This home is simplicity and minimalism incarnate, defined by its sharp lines in contrast to the untamed waters surrounding it.
