The amazing location of the site in the worldwide known resort Elounda Beach (leading of the world hotels) suggests a new project simulation that aims to link the scale of the land with the one of the sea marked by the beautiful surrounding bay that offers intimacy and wide view to the horizon at the same time.

Set back on the coast the raw of volumes faces the water as they would be anchored yachts towards the sea, while proposing a urban atmosphere on the land side. The news created pathways with open views to the sea have a reduced scale that reminds the ancient streets of coastal villages but in a contemporary way.

The strength geometry of the single units becomes a fluent landscape towards the sea through the sequence of rounded surfaces and 45° wall lines carving the deepness of the volumes. The whole system becomes a new artificial landscape that saws the two different conditions.

The use of dark grey stone for the cladding of the exterior walls set the new volumes in harmony with the surrounding nature and the use of natural materials as wood and leather enwraps the people in a warm atmosphere of natural taste.
