A unique property with a minimal but traditional architecture
The property has a very sleek and minimal loft–style design, and has been restored with a deep understanding for its traditional Santorini architecture using the old style of polished cement and eco–friendly materials. Elements of the old factory have been incorporated into the design, and a huge piece of machinery stands like a magnificent sculpture as the centerpiece of one of the numerous living spaces. The villa boasts generous outdoor space: with two impressive pool terraces and various additional alfresco arrangements, you will be spoiled for choice in finding your perfect spot to lap up the Greek sunshine. Care and attention have been lavished on this home to make sure everything is stylish and luxurious without being fussy. It offers unbeatable comfort and effortless elegance for what is truly a one–of–a–kind luxury villa.
Vaulted spaces of various sizes and uses are organized into two basic building volumes. Some spaces are cave like and hide their form and some are expressed as cubic volumes. The masonry construction determines the form and size of the spaces as well as the way they relate spatially. Domes, arches, thick walls, small windows compose the distinguished vernacular complex geometry and form of the buildings. The typological unit which makes up the fabric of Pyrgos is evident in the strict spatial organization of the complex with its protected courtyard and the various spaces built around it, allowing an almost “theatrical” reading of the space while creating a sense of increased privacy and introversion.
Crescent-shaped Santorini is actually a group of islands consisting of Thíra, Thirassiá, Asproníssi, Palea and Nea Kaméni in the southernmost part of Cyclades. The whole complex of Santorini islands is still an active volcano and probably the only volcano in the world whose crater is in the sea. The islands that form Santorini came into existence as a result of intensive volcanic activity which created a large crater, the famous caldera. Santorini is a world-renowned destination due to its amazing volcanic topography, the romantic setting, the traditional villages and some of the best Greek beaches.
