Casa Elisa

Location: Aeolian islands, Italy


Location Address: Lipari

Status: Completed Works

Casa Elisa is a representation of the overseas projects of Oikos Architecture. Located on Lipari island north of Sicily. Lipari, the largest of the Aeolian Islands, offers beautiful beaches and magnificent volcanic scenery, but also hosts a busy downtown and an archaeological museum, representation of the island’s rich history. Casa Elisa, practically situated right in the center of Lipari and at the top of a hill offers panoramic sea views of the island.
By coincidence, Oikos Architecture worked again on a volcanic landscape, on a different country though. For this project the Cycladic architecture’s vibes met the local tradition and mixed with respect for each other. The result is organic all-white shapes combined with the local Italian appointment. The building is characterized from a terrace aligned to the scenery and traditional barbeque facilities. Its fluid forms, remind Cycladic houses transported into a green environment, but also filled with Sicilian architecture details, all of them fully functional.
