“The Architect’s Villa” is a holiday home overlookingthe sea in the south and Mount Taygetos in the north in the Greek region of Mani. The area is characterized by a barren, brittle landscape and the traditional Mani architecture with stone houses and towers. The villa – together with another house – is part of a building complex, which refers to the topography of the landscape. Typical elements of the historic houses are put into a modern context.

The villa stands alone in the middle of an olive grove and assures ultimate privacy for its guests. The Architect’s Villa is designed to live both indoor and outdoor surrounded by panoramic views.
