Cubes & blocks


The holiday house mavie on the Greek island of Lefkada evokes associations with an elegant ocean liner. The building consists of several cubes arranged in a row, and a slightly twisted cuboid structure stacked above them. You enter the house on the upper level, which is glazed on three sides and resembles a command bridge. From the living room with a sitting area, kitchen and dining area you can enjoy views of the Ionian Sea, the city of Lefkada, and the mainland.
