Architecture designed through emotion. A home to enjoy the freedom of peaceful existence in nature - DesignOnWeb
Thanks to its stone, white walls and wood, Villa Mandra on the Greek island of Mykonos seems to be a natural product of the very land on which it is built and mimetically integrated: the panoramic ridge of Aleomandra. From its privileged position there, it embodies the satisfaction of that human need that the architects of K Studio poetically define as the pleasure of dedicating time to connecting with yourself, with nature and with everything that nourishes the spirit and which most people call a "holiday"
Therefore, it is a holiday home for a young, dynamic couple who are looking for a place to enjoy family and friends, which K Studio transforms into a space where a spirit of communion with others and with nature and individual freedom can harmoniously coexist. The only inner and outer condition that enables a peaceful and flourishing existence is indeed the constitutive intent of Villa Mandra
Thanks to the steep terrain of the ridge, the nocturnal functions of the villa, the more private functions of living are found on the lower level of the villa; from here, the 6 bedrooms can enjoy their own exclusive view of the gardens and the sea, below the terrace that houses the upper garden; on the latter, together with a refreshing swimming pool, the open and unusual daytime space blossoms
The open-air living room is the centrepiece of the daytime and communal area and is covered by a wooden pergola protecting it from the powerful elements of nature in which the house is immersed. It joins the simple white volumes inspired by the island's tradition in which the other living functions are located
An articulated and dynamic construction that always offers different points of view on the beauty that surrounds it: thus every corner and every room stimulates a special and unique atmosphere of relaxation, reflection and exploration of the nature in which it is immersed, as well as the inner human nature with a view of the boundless horizon of the Greek sea and its sunsets
