Pahia Amos, Astypalia

In the heart of a natural Greek island, in a secluded area untouched by man, four extraordinary villas are to be erected. Based on the strict conservation laws of the islands in the region, developed as an integral part of the topography, seen and invisible, the villas will be humble and monumental at the same time.

Bird's eye view of the cliff house

Arriving by sea or air only, the villas are situated in a virgin landscape. They are set on steep topography and the design capitalizes on these features, creating strong connections between indoor and outdoor areas while maintaining privacy and creating breathtaking views from every angle.

The masterplan of the villa compound

The pristine area requires comprehensive infrastructure planning, including electricity, water and roads. Each villa is characterized by different physical conditions and thus they were divided into four different plots: the cliff, lagoon, hill and beach. These characteristics create a different design approach for each villa yet maintains the fundamental values of the architecture – ecological construction, smart layouts, modest materials and an architecture embedded in the landscape.
