Located on the east side of Sifnos island, the private villa concerns the design of a seven-bedroom holiday house, offering uninterrupted views over the Aegean sea. Originally intended to house two separate holiday homes, the building was redesigned while preserving its original structure. The reorganization of the spaces and the configuration of the two volumes that pre-existed led to the final creation of a single house. A large outdoor living room, a dining area, and an outdoor kitchen meet in a single space, while smaller courtyards serve mainly the bedrooms.
The exterior of the house is completed by a linear pool facing the sea. The clean-lined building volumes are defined by the Cycladic austerity and geometry that characterizes the traditional houses of the Aegean. Drawing inspiration from architectural simplicity, the villa is the outcome of a natural composition of geometric volumes that serve the functional needs of a luxury home.
The color palette, the materials, and the furniture that is selected are characterized by the simple design and unpretentious elegance, offering a relaxed and welcoming environment. The white plaster coating on the brick masonry combined with the stone used in the shaping of the surrounding area, are materials completely linked to the Greek Cycladic identity.
