Designed by the renowned Catalan architect, Javier Barba, this house is considered to be one of the most impressive on the island of Mykonos.
The design concept has close ties with the traditional architecture of the island, curving domes, rounded walls and whitewashed chimney stacks together with strong stone walls to provide shelter against the scorching heat and the ‘meltemi’, the north winds, common to Mykonos during the summer months.
Barba, known for his love of integrated architecture has included some unique features in the house, one of the most striking being the huge crop of rock, a natural feature of the site, which he kept in situ and incorporated into the interior of the structure. It proudly sits in the open living, dining area and complements the local materials used, wood, stone white stucco together with mosaic, one in particular which depicts a lizard in homage to the lizard which the architect found when initially investigating the site, long before building began.
Natural daylight floods the rooms which offer views of Delos and Mykonos town. On the outside, the pergola and infinity pool provide perfect spaces or rest and relaxation.
French designer Christian Liaigre is responsible for the interior furnishings which ooze elegance and comfort. Neutral and earth tones together with wooden beams, stately columns, parquet and coloured cement floors complete the interior of this spectacular island home.
