Which is why, the architects at Phoenix Kessaku have spun a beautiful tale, inspired by remnants of history & unique artistic ideals. Here’s how the story goes.
The Spartan Saga
Wild, rustic,stripped down to the barebones. That’s what Spartan Architecture is all about. Courtyardssurrounded bylarge verandahs & gardensoverflowing with fruits trees & herbs. Interiors, not embellished with gold or silver, but the glint of sunrays, reflecting off the indoor pools.Huge windows that let in oodles of light, adding charm to the austere natural interiors.Unfortunately, most Spartan artifacts did not stand the test of time, but the art certainly did.
According to a study published byLegends & Chronicleson ancient Sparta, it was a statethat was built upon skills & knowledge, rather magnificence &grandeur.Their lifestyle was about preservation rather than celebration.Simple and purposeful, Spartan homes revolved around the concept,‘less is more’.
Lately, there has been a resurgence. Spartan design principles have begun to influence modern, contemporary architects. The result? Homes that are functional, rooms fitted with essentials for daily life, selective furnishings & fixtures, built with natural elements.
