A Greek Cabin in the Spirit of Le Corbusier

In honor of French architect Le Corbusier and the seaside holiday house he built for his wife in 1952 on the Cote d’Azur across the bay from Monaco – husband and wife team, Anotnis Choudalakis and Sofia Mavroudis, built their own pair of cabins in Kissamos, Crete.
