Crete was and still is a bridge, a crossroads, between the east and the west.

Byzantines, Arabs, Venetians, Ottomans have left their stigma on the island, which, despite adopting the cultural elements of a wider Mediterranean civilization, remained unaltered Greek

This Mediterranean civilization is reflected on the monuments of the island as well as on the authentic popular and traditional architecture that has been maintained. All these pieces of work are characterized by the earthy colour of the construction materials which propitiate the bright Greek light and harmoniously place the building within  the natural environment.

Respect for the natural sloping of the terrain leads to bending roads and paths

Arrangement of the buildings around the yards.

Organic development of the volume of the buildings

Use of “green” cool shaded areas for outdoor staying.

The above are some of the elements of the Mediterranean housing that can be identified. 

The use of the dome and the cupolo on the roof is another Mediterranean practice that (among others) aims to achieve a cooler atmosphere in the residential area of the building and keep a larger quantity of air in it.

Buildings with circular ground plan and doming roofs we find in the larger Mediterranean area (Crete, North Karpathos (the island of Saria), but also Sardenia (Alberobello), Syria and others).

If we add the use of levels and low ceilings with pyramidal style to the above  as further characteristics of an architectural “philosophy” we come to the point to define  the aims and phase of the “Domes of Elunda”, a venture that is trying to create organic areas of human scale, in harmony with the special characteristics of the contemporary Mediterranean housing.
