Living Next to Delphi
Lauded by Homer and Pindar, Pliny and Plutarch, the ancient Greek site of Delphi was revered for centuries as the “navel of the earth.” Seekers came from all over Greece to consult the mysterious Oracle and Sibyl, and great athletes and musicians participated in its Pythian Games. Dedicated to Apollo, the god of music, poetry, sun, medicine, light, and knowledge, Delphi is today a major archeological site with spectacular architectural remains of great historical and cultural significance. With this as inspiration, well-known Greek architect and designer Veta Stefanidou Tsoukala has designed several luxury homes in the region that are renowned for their play of architectural scale and subtle melding of influences from ancient and rustic to sleek and modern. In this beautifully illustrated volume, Veta Stefanidou Tsoukala shares the inspirations behind her richly textured creations.
