Argo Hotel Mykonos

On the Greek island of Mykonos is the fantastic Argo Hotel Mykonos for which they decided to give a new look by using our Cements Smoke ceramic, a colour that imitates cement, adding the advantages of porcelain stoneware, placing it all over the terrace, a simple way to modernise the hotel.

PRIVATE VILLA Cote D'Azur

Cagnes-sur-Mer, Côte d'Azur - The aromas of the garrigue envelop the essential forms of a private villa in the heart of the Côte d'Azur.

Methoni Wellness Villas

Similarly to the Greek term νόστος, used in Ancient Greek literature and describes the feelings of an epic hero returning home by sea, the identity of Methoni Wellness Center revolves around memory and the feeling of reaching something familiar. In Ancient Greek society, it was deemed a high level of heroism or greatness for those who managed to return. This journey is usually very extensive and includes being shipwrecked in an unknown location and going through certain trials that test the hero. The theme of Nostos is brought to life in Homer’s Odyssey, where the main hero Odysseus tries to return home after battling in the Trojan War. The design approach aims to create a unique wellness retreat connectin... More

EXAMILIA HOUSE

The single storey vacation house is located in the area of Korinthos, at Peloponnese in Greece. The four acres plot is almost flat, overlooking the Corinthian bay at the north, while offering an impressive view of the extraordinary hill of Examilia at the west. The single straight white volume hosts both the house and its open or shaded patios within a structure that acts as a cloister in relation to the plot, while the rest of the surrounding terrain remains in its natural form. The concept was to cohere the inside and outside living into a single volume, a rectangular parallelepiped composed of solid, open and transparent surfaces. The unification of the indoor and outdoor spaces in transition creates spatial amplitude for the 137 m2 dwel... More

Summer House

IDEA One of the key design intents was to create a building that would be completely open to the surroundings, providing the possibility to observe and engage in direct contact with nature. The concept of a one-story summer house with a panoramic view of the sea was designed with seasonal recreation and weekends outside the city in mind. This 85-square-meter large building is set in a rocky seaside area with direct contact with water. The house comprises two principal parts: a living space and a swimming pool located on the roof. In the building plan with a triangle-based layout, one can distinguish a central living area and an external passage with a panoramic view of the seaside. The structure of the building is based on three structure... More

Istoria, a member of Design Hotels

Mahon Pool

The existing Mahon Pool Amenities building was located on the edge of a spectacular rock shelf overlooking the ocean and Mahon pool. The building itself was a delapidated 1960’s brick box, which was had no relationship with its context and was visually intrusive.   Our proposal sought to create a linear building, which receded into the cliffside landscape. The building shape responds to the rock form folding around the contours and its precaste materiality seeks to become an extension of the rock landform.   A concrete skirt extends from the building and creates a terraced shelf  inviting occupation and lounging. The  shelf extends into a stair down to the Pool as well as integrating within the broader parkland... More

Atelier Luxury Apartments Landscape

Real estate developer Carmel Partners awarded Surfacedesign creative control of the outside living spaces at its luxury apartment project Atelier, designed by architecture firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz.  Taking inspiration from the building’s proximity to the former Los Angeles Garment District, Surfacedesign’s overall approach was influenced by the Bauhaus textile patterns of Anni Albers.  Geometrical lines and shapes are repeated throughout the 33-story project’s two outdoor living spaces: pool/amenity deck and rooftop lounge.  Surfacedesign injected the textile inspiration into the composition, stitching together the hardscape with a rich landscape of native and Mediterranean plantings.   Atelier&rsq...

LND11

A few steps from Parco Sempione, the green heart of the city of Milan, LPzR architects have designed a new “nearly zero energy” (nZEB) residential building, with innovative technological solutions and a swimming pool on the roof.   “Urban stitching” is the concept. The architects wanted to design a new link between two extremely heterogeneous buildings: a three-storey school complex from the 1800s, and an eight-story residential building from the 1960s. The new volumes align carefully with the adjacent buildings, to fit morphologically into the pre-existing architectures. The compositional language, on the other hand, is admittedly contemporary, even if there are references to traditional architectural element... More
