Stark white walls frame vistas of the Ionian Sea from a bright white house by Brussels-based architect Olivier Dwek, which is perched above the coastline of Zante.

The island, made famous by Greek poet Homer in mythological tales the Iliad and the Odyssey, sits off the west coast of mainland Greece in the Ionian Sea and is popular with tourists for its sandy beaches and deep blue waters.

The design draws inspiration from the quote “Blue has no dimensions, it is beyond dimensions” by late French artist Yves Klein – acclaimed for his monochrome paintings. Dwek added huge sliding glass doors to the property to help lessen the distinction between interior and exterior spaces.
