Set in the unique landscape of the Rolling Greens, the design in conjunction with an innovative construction philosophy have enabled the creation of prototypical holiday villas that embrace the view, adapt to the scale of the landscape and harmonize with the environment and the aesthetics of Costa Navarino. 

The design of the single storey detached villa is an exercise in horizontality. Its inhabitation is organised in-between the horizons of a solid platform and a cantilevering roof. The latter being flat and planted, essentially the building’s fifth 'facade', converses with and complements the surrounding vegetation, incorporates solar panels and skylights, acting as a climatic moderator, contributing to the thermal comfort of the residence while providing generous shaded spaces for all-day outdoor living below.

On the platform, the entrance to the residence is located on a central axis. The private areas of the villa -three en-suite bedrooms, the kitchen and the annexed guest house- are laid out linearly with a northeastern orientation. The southwestern facing living room -glazed on three sides- 'opens up' completely joining indoor and outdoor living spaces.

Extending beyond the roof, the platform offers a generous sunbathing area, reaches the swimming pool, incorporates the golf course panorama and aligns with the horizon of the Ionian Sea.
