Although many of us were forced to read The Odyssey as part of some trivial middle school assignment, that’s hardly enough to do Homer’s epic the justice it deserves. After all, with its enchanting plot and impressive attention to detail, it’s not for nothing that the poem is widely regarded as one of the foundational works of Western literature. Hell, some even consider it to be the first novel of all time.

As an homage to one of the world’s most renowned heroes, Krak. Architects has built a stunning luxury residence it’s calling ‘Casa Odyssia.’ Perched on a hillside in Corfu overlooking the Ionian Sea, it makes for a project of truly royal proportions. Every element is made from raw concrete, a material that offers a stark contrast to the lush surrounding landscape filled with cypress and olive trees. However, just because the building has an imposing visual weight to it, doesn’t mean that it isn’t warm and inviting in its own right. Rather, with its expansive openings for letting in natural sunlight and its series of stepped terraces for enjoying the summer months, it ensures a perfect harmony between the interior space and the outdoor environment.
