Villa Anemolia in Megalochori, Santorini, Greece by MPLUSM Architects

 
December 15th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

This renovation is in Megalochori, an introverted and quiet village in Santorini. Dealing with a preexisting house, we wanted Villa Anemolia  to reach a level of heightened simplicity. The three vaulted rooms were preserved with minimum alterations. All previous furniture was removed -we chose built-in beds, wardrobes that merge with the walls and wooden sofa beds that flank the living area.

Traditional vaulted structures in Santorini are typically cavernous, embedded in the volcanic soil and this building is no exception: windows open only to the side of the courtyard. Thus we opted for additional light sources: new skylights and small wall recesses with embedded lights offer a dispersal of luminosity from hidden light sources. New planted areas in the courtyard and roof terrace upgrade all outdoor areas and become the primary backdrop for a pleasant stay.
