VACATION HOUSE IN KOSTOULA, PORTO HELI (2000-2004)
This is a new vacation villa in the Kostoula area of Porto Heli, on a splendid side of great inclination, overlooking the passage between the Peloponnese and the island of Spetses. There are great views to this dramatic environment from every part of the site. The entrance hall divide the site in such a way, that the life around the swimming pool and the pergolas that surround it does not interfere with the necessary quietness of the bedrooms. At the lower part of the site a tennis court has been developed. There is a guest room and a garage in the levels between the main house and the tennis court, with terraces covered with earth and planted, thus enlarging the surrounding landscape of the appropriate levels above. The interior as well as the exterior decoration are in simple classic vernacular, with few architectural details. All the parts of the house that lie bellow the swimming pool and the bedroom wing are clad in stone, in order to differentiate them from the mass of the main building.
