Kalamaki Villa on the Coast of Greece / MGXM Architects

Kalamaki Villa by MGXM Architects

Kalamaki Villa is situated on a foothill in small distance from the coast on the west side of the Messinian Gulf, Greece. This luxurious villa was designed by MGXM Architects.

The building comprises of two volumes which are linked via a patio which functions as a living area during the summer. The long length swimming pool is situated in a continuation of this space. The building is laid out in such a way that upon entering, the user is presented with a frame of the infinity pool, a strip of sea and the pyramid of Taygetus Mountain beyond.

This harmonious sequence is also highlighted by an according use of materials. The same marble has paved the “square” before the entrance and the patio, then surrounds the pool ending to a waterfall at its end towards the sea.

Respectively, natural materials of Peloponnese were used for the building such as marble and stone, while supreme white dominates the walls, reflecting the lights and highlighting the juxtaposition of the materials.

The main residence comprises of two storeys with the living areas at ground level and a comfortable bedroom on the first floor. Large openings on both levels maintain a sensation of open space throughout the residence’s interior.
