Mykonos Villas vol.4VIEW CONTENTS SHARE
The 4th MykonosVillas bookazine is a bilingual luxury edition featuring 14 captivating summer retreats recently designed for the famous Cycladic island setting, by acclaimed architectural offices.
The houses of Mykonos form a contemporary architectural style, juxtaposing rough stone walls and white plastered volumes, angular or curved, textured, or smooth, where the inclusion of Cycladic typological elements results in aesthetically integrated architectural ensembles. Often built directly upon the natural bedrock, the stone masonry creates open-air formations, connecting the building with its environment, while differently oriented volumes and framed views, alterations of closed and open spaces, changing light and shadow, converse with the dominant features of the natural surrounding: Dry soil, the sea, and the wind.
The photographs selected for publication highlight the excellent construction quality of the houses, combining modern technological amenities with hand-crafted components, adapted to present-day conditions, such as stonework, pressed cement mortar, timber construction and paving.
