This complex of three vacation villas is situated on a plot with a steep slope and lush vegetation, in the village of Antipata of Kefalonia. The main goal of the architectural study was the creation of a complex that would be harmoniously integrated with its surrounding environment, adjusting the buildings themselves with the human scale, framing at the same time the distant view to Ithaca and Lefkada.

The complex reproduces aesthetically and experientially the atmosphere of a small settlement, while creating a sense of security and privacy for each house separately, due to their placement on different levels. Each house consists of the main living areas, two bedrooms with private bathrooms and an outdoor area with a pool and sitting space.

In terms of form, parallel stone walls form linear volumes, in which are enclosed spaces sheltered with the traditional double-pitched roof of Kefalonian architecture. The sliding doors of all areas are oriented overlooking the Ionian Sea, intensifying the element of transparency on the facades of the villas unifying, at the same time, the interior with the exterior.

The beige stone with the corresponding mortar colour in combination with the plaster of the same tone, creates a whole, with a variety of texture, providing, with the use of wood, an even warmer tone to the whole complex.
