Heraklion / Crete / Greece
The unobstructed sea views combined with the strong sun over the Cretan landscape, informed the architectural thinking.
Functionality and integration of the custom-made furniture to the landscape was of outmost importance to the brief. The shadows casted by the wicker pergola amplify the natural materials chosen, and offer a constant transmutation of the space throughout the day.
In continuity to the restaurant, the outdoor pool follows similar design ideas, highlighting the infinity views to the Aegean Sea.
