Architecture is a raw medium that often breaks the rules of society, especially when it comes to the confines of foundational space and construction. The Issa Megaron single family home on the Croatian Isle of Vis presented the perfect opportunity for Proarh Architecture to challenge the status quo, culminating in an extensive dwelling that pushes the boundaries of what can be done with modern architectural practice.
The Megaron presides over an underlying grotto with stacked vertical terraces clad in local greenery and topsoil. Only two of the terraces are viable living areas and offer open-ended, unobstructed views of the surrounding landscape. The home appears to be built directly into the hillside, utilizing reinforced concrete and stone to erect a wide living space comprised of a dining room, lounge, kitchen, and terrace pool area. Angular concrete facades tower over a pristine blue pool, surrounded by paneled windows that stretch the length of the unique home.
