Traditional Craft in Corfu

Director and co-founder Jay Gort has just returned from a site visit to our house project in Kerasia, Corfu. The project spans a collection of three buildings arranged across a sloping olive grove and is the lifelong aspiration of our client.

The construction is rooted in traditional practices and we are working with talented local tradespeople, Nico and his team at Gaia, to create a structure which will be true to the history of the landscape. The care and craft from this team is evident throughout the project, right down to each piece of local stone which has been precisely hand-chiselled on site by stone mason Yannis.

It’s been rewarding to work with the site’s topography and local contexts to create an emerging space which is embedded in its surrounding natural landscape and coexist with its historic surroundings.
