Tolo, Greece

Outstanding panoramic views

The holiday home lies in a lush valley with outstanding panoramic views of the Argolic Gulf and the islands of Plateia, Psili and Spetses. Set amidst the olive groves of the Peloponnese Region, the two-storey house blends in smoothly with its cubature and materials.

A sloping stone wall accentuates the entrance to the ground floor, which is partially built into the rock, while the large living area and private quarters open out towards the sea. The upper floor with two additional en suite bedrooms consists of a compact, single-storey volume which lies at a right angle to the ground floor. The natural stone masonry really positions the house within nature. It is also accentuated by white plastered areas which unite the rigid shapes of the building structures.
In keeping with the Mediterranean climate, life here is spent outdoors. Terraces on various levels allow a panoramic view of the bay and surrounding landscape from different perspectives, while an infinity pool on the ground floor spans the entire length of the holiday home, giving a feeling of endlessness. The dissolution of spatial boundaries between inside and outside is made intuitive thanks to the clever zoning and arrangement of the interior rooms. However, the highlight of the holiday home is the floor-to-ceiling, threshold-free sliding windows, which offer breathtaking views of the sea across the entire length of the living space. The layout of the rooms, which form a constant dialogue between light and shadow, indoors and outdoors, embodies a unique style of living which meets the needs of the residents while providing a personalised experience.
