This complex of luxury villas in Mykonos features a northeast orientation providing absolute privacy from the street level as, due to the plot’s steep slope, the villa’s entrance is almost at the first floor’s level.

The houses’ main structure is based on the monolithic volumes of Mykonian architecture. Due to the plot’s shape, the houses are designed next to each other, creating a single composition, which is visually and functionally divided by placing them on different levels. The strict geometry of these volumes and the outdoor space design, creates contrasts with the curved lines of each house’s pool.

The materials selected reproduce the traditional principles of the local Cycladic architecture, while the contrast created from the use of the plaster’s white colour with the stone’s grey-brown colour, visually divides the complex’s scale and harmoniously integrates in its environment. The beige coloured cement mortar combines the above two colour tones in a palette of soft and earthy shades.
