If anything can make me feel like I'm already on holiday, this home and office by ARP Architecture Research Practice does! APS house is on Antiparos island, Cyclades, Greece, facing a protected archaeological island, Despotikon and its ancient Apollo sanctuary. It is a summer artist's residence with a studio space. Five square volumes are organized on two levels alternating with covered terraces and courtyards. A chequered layout produces a variety of enclosed, covered and open spaces that vary in scale and spatial quality. The expansive roof garden has my name on it. A great place to stretch out and soak up that gorgeous blue sky and sun.
