The villa’s design has been creatively informed by extensive research into Messinia’s traditional architecture, rich cultural heritage and favorable climate. From the outset, the aim was a residence for people seeking a harmonious blend of modernity in an enchanting natural Mediterranean setting. The villa has been conceived as a sculptural, eminently functional, volumetric building.
The “fortress” aspect is still present, but outdoor spaces have been a design priority. The atrium is the heart of the house, while pergolas shade and protect. The inspiration for the villa derives primarily from the Messinian village of Kardamyli, though interpreted in a modern way.
The villa seamlessly integrates new building materials and technologies with time-honored ones, reflecting a fruitful dialogue between tradition and modernity.
