It is the white house was designed by modern architects of the Greek Thanos Athanasopoulos and comes with some amazing features. Located in Ekali, a suburb of Athens, is the seat of the family’s house, which is a model of modern life. Its architecture was developed in response to the environment. Large windows to the views of the countryside and a swimming pool, and in natural light. The ceiling is very interesting and original.

Here is more on this structure from the architects: “The main building volume is covered by a pitched double-curved roof which is clad with conventional ceramic roof tiles. The roof-tile cladding cascades down the surface of the north wall, creating a rainscreen that contributes to the environmental performance of the house and conceptually to the visual impression of a seamless protective blanket. This element, which provides coherence to the whole scheme reinterpreting the traditional ceramic-tile roof, is part of an attempt to shape an appropriate architectural identity –material and spatial- in a suburban context where traditional imagery and contemporary desires are fused and confused.“
