Monday, May 7th, 2018

Article source: TSALIKIAN ARCHITECTS & INTERIORS

Located in the heart of Mykonos Town, which many could describe as an elaborate maze, formed by a complex of whitewashed houses, crammed together in an organic orderliness, creating narrow streets that resemble streams, when overflowing with people, who like to stroll curiously through it exploring and discovering its secrets.

Blossom Owl in Kalamata, Greece by TZOKAS architects

Monday, March 19th, 2018

Article source: TZOKAS architects 

The redesign of the space (previous name “Reload b/c”), which our architectural firm had undertaken in the past, so as, with the minimum changes and expenses, to achieve a brand new identity, was a great challenge for us.

Even though the management would remain the same, the main idea of operating the café would change to transform it into a coffee grinder’s with café services. This operation should transform the café, which initially had an industrial design, to a place more open to the customers, making them feel warm and cosy. At the same time, customers could witness the process of making different kinds of coffee! A great effort was placed on recycling the existing materials from the previous café, yet without living a trace of their past.

Article source: ASPASIA TAKA architects creative lab 

The renovation of Manassu beach bar and restaurant was designed by ASPASIA TAKA Architects Creative Lab in 2017. The freshness of the summer and the multifunctionality of the space were the main tasks for the redesign proposal of the famous beach bar, which lies at the Sithonia peninsula in Halkidiki. The design took into consideration the fully integrated into the sea site, thus the approach included use of natural materials and respect to nature. The concept is to create areas that embrace the guests so as to provide both relaxation and entertainment. The new amenities include a restaurant, a bar and multiple lounges that are located all around. Furthermore, changes in the ground levels optimized the different views from the bar to the sea. Moreover, the use of natural materials, such as stone and wood strengthen the connection to nature. Last but not least, a blend of textiles offers a variety of patterns and style.

Diopter residence in Attiki, Greece by panos.nikolaidis.design

Monday, January 15th, 2018

Article source: panos.nikolaidis.design

Designed to assure the privacy of its residents, this house could be described as a bunker, massive, imposing and seclusive. A child, though, would say that it is nothing other than the head of a robot! Depending on the background of each individual, it encompasses different meanings. Actually most locals consider it unpleasant to say the least! It’s just a matter of perspective.

Chapel Mykonos in Greece by Dimitrios Tsigos – Omniview

Monday, September 25th, 2017

Article source: Dimitrios Tsigos – Omniview

The interior design that converted legendary Zorbas Bar to Chapel is part of our strategy to return to our #CycladicRoots. This has to do with giving back to the Cycladic interior and exterior spaces the elementary, indigenous qualities that have been eliminated in the past 40 years in the name of modernity.

Arcs have been traditionally employed in the Cyclades to generate enclosure when there was no concrete. Double arched roofs, a 3d geometry that is defined by arcs in various directions, are the only way to make a building when all you have is stones. The interior space feeling of a double arched roof is remarkable, and it is closely interwoven with Cycladic churches are chapels.

The steep ground and the plot’s narrow dimensions determine the pronounced and gradient form of the building which rises from the mountain and over the valley of Poisses, to finally balance itself with the surrounding traditional dwellings and the natural context.

ekies All senses resort redesign in Greece, Balkans by CTRLZAK Studio

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

Article source: CTRLZAK Studio 

TRLZAK studio was asked by ekies All senses resort to give a deeper meaning to the hotel’s identity. Inspired by Chalkidiki’s special ecosystem, where rounded stone volumes and pine trees are in direct contact with the sea, CTRLZAK studio developed creative solutions that underline nature’s presence and invite visitors to reflect on their relationship with it. The typical Mediterranean Pine tree (Pinus Pinea), which is found in the region, was the archetype of the project. Starting from the lower parts of the Pine tree, the roots are translated into various paths leading visitors gradually towards the sea shore and eventually branching inside the sea itself. Going higher up the tree-trunk, one finds the tinder fungus (Fomes fomentarius), an umbrella-shaped fungal species, that inspired us for the new shade coverings of the lounge area. The pine needles themselves become protagonists of the resort functioning as dividers and coverings taking the shape of articulate patterns that evolve in the restaurants, bar and in particular the Treehouse itself. Inside the tree’s branches though, there are also parasitic organisms such as the Pine Processionary (Thaumetopoea pityocampa) whose larvae form silk-like nests and constitute the inspiration for the ‘cocoon’ that wraps around the gourmet restaurant of the Treehouse. A seemingly negative connotation that creates yet a scenic setting hopefully making people reflect on their role within such a context while providing a unique gourmet experience, admiring the sea from within the tree’s embrace. The studio’s intention with the above metaphor and other related elements within the project is to underline, in a symbolic way, the transition of the visitor’s role from parasitic to symbiotic creating a harmonic relationship between humans and nature.
